Abuja -The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) on Thursday confirmed that 44 Nigeria pilgrims died in Saudi Arabia during the hajj.

Alhaji Yusuf Ibrahim, the National Commissioner in-charge of Policy, Personnel Management and Finance at NAHCON confirmed the deaths



“I can confirm to you that the number of deaths of Nigeria pilgrims as at today Dec. 1 is 44,’’
he said.

Though, he was silent on the cause of the  deaths, the gender of the deceased as well as the states of the pilgrims,  he  said  the details would be unfolded after all the pilgrims have returned.

On the deadline of Dec. 15 by the Saudi Arabian authorities for all pilgrims to be transported back to their countries, Ibrahim said NAHCON would beat the deadline by the “grace of Allah’’.

“The deadline given by the Saudi Authority is Dec. 15 and by Dec. 7, the last batch of Nigeria pilgrims will be at home Insha Allah’’, he said.

The national commissioner said as at Thursday, the Commission had transported 69,693 pilgrims back home in 141 flight operations since the commencement on Nov. 11.

He said to beat the deadline set by the Saudi government,  six to eight flights would be transporting pilgrims back home on daily basis.

Ibrahim assured all Nigerians, whose relatives were still in the Holy Land not to panic, as they would all be transported back home safely. (NAN)

@ teebaz990

This is not good. How can you wish about 100,000 people dead. Honestly speaking, comments from other christians moves me. I hope things will change for the better. RIP for the dead.

These people are human beings and our brothers and sisters, we may disagree with each
other on this forum, but we shouldn't wish anyone death.
