    Kogi pilgrim dies in Makkah

    An elderly woman from Igala-Mela Local Government Area of Kogi State, Hajiya Asmau Iyawo Abdullahi, has  reportedly died in Makkah, Saudi Arabia after a brief illness.

    Hajiya Abdullahi was among the pilgrims from the state performing this year’s Hajj.

    The state’s Hajj Commission chairman, Shiekh Lukman Abdullahi Imam,  disclosed this, on Wednesday, while giving an update of the Hajj exercise in Makkah.

    He said the  70-year-old pilgrim died on Tuesday morning due to some complications. 

    In his words “she died after all attempts by our medical team to treat her failed; she was an elderly person and her health deteriorated immediately she arrived the holy land. May Allah forgive her of all her wrongdoings; she  has since been buried in the city of Makkah.

    “Apart from this pilgrim that died, all our pilgrims are in good health. We give thanks to Allah for keeping all our pilgrims in good health,” he said.

    Sheikh Imam commended the good conduct of the state pilgrims, saying they have really cooperated with the commission.

    About 2,973 pilgrims  from kogi state are currently in Saudi Arabia performing this  year’s hajj.
