Nigerian Pilgrims

According to the Chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, Abdullahi Mohammed, Five Nigerian pilgrims to this year’s hajj in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, have been reported dead.

Mr. Mohammed, speaking at the 2017 pre-Arafat meeting with Hajj stakeholders, however, refuse to name the identities of the late pilgrims as well as the circumstances that led to their death.

He said such information could only be disclosed after their families had been appropriately informed.

The NAHCON chair pleaded with the media to withhold the details so as not to further devastate the families of the affected pilgrims.
