Eighteen Nigerians Die In Saudi Arabia

Eighteen Nigerians died in Saudi Arabia during the just concluded 2016 Hajj, attended by Muslims, the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) says.
The victims were from Kwara, Kogi, Bauchi, Taraba, Niger, Kaduna, FCT. There were foreign-based Nigerian pilgrims as well.





The head of NAHCON’s medical team, Ibrahim Kana, said two pilgrims, including a 40-year-old woman, died in Madinah.
Three died in Muna, while 13 died in Makkah. A mentally ill woman was amongst the victim.

Kana, however, said the 2016 death toll was the lowest in five years. He attributed the low figure to enhanced sanitation, increased medical awareness and compressed national medical team.
The medical team attended to over 21,000 patients from the commencement of the Hajj rites, Mr. Kana said.

He disclosed that despite repeated warnings, the medical team detected five pregnant women.
NAHCON chairman, Abdullahi Mukhtar, said all states which failed to give basic transport allowance to their pilgrims as well as those who collected Adiya money (money for ram slaughtering), and failed to remit same to NAHCON, would be penalised.

He said the commission would reimburse those who paid for services like air conditioned tents, and the newly introduced e –wristband, but did not enjoy products and services.

There is nothing to be sad about. They should go directly to "heaven" if they die during the hajj
