    Breaking: 5 Nigerian Pilgrims Die In Saudi Arabia

    Information reaching the news desk this evening reveals that Five Nigerian pilgrims to this year’s hajj in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, have died..

    According to Abdullahi Mohammed, the Chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON), who spoke at the 2017 pre-Arafat meeting with Hajj stakeholders, the pilgrims died on Tuesday but he declined to disclose the identities of the deceased as well as the causes of their death.

    He added that such information has been relayed to the families of the late Pilgrims. Mohammed pleaded with journalists to withhold details so as not to further devastate the families of the affected pilgrims.
