Lagos Hajj pilgrims begin return trip to Nigeria

Lagos State Pilgrims Welfare Board has concluded arrangements for the return trips of the 1,869 pilgrims who performed this year’s Holy pilgrimage through the state.

The Amir-ul-Hajj and Hon. Commissioner for Home Affairs, Hon. Olanrewaju Ibrahim Layode, stated this during an engagement with the pilgrims in Makkah.

He said that 188 pilgrims comprising the elders, those with health issues and the ‘Lagos International Pilgrims’ from USA and Europe, would depart on Sunday, June 23, on the same flight with Kebbi State pilgrims.

Layode stressed further that the full flight of the State would continue on Monday, June 24 with the second batch and this would run on ‘first-in, first-out basis.

“Which means that there would not be preferential treatment for any pilgrims, except if the occasion warrants it,” he said, adding that the status quo ante would remain until the last batch of pilgrims are airlifted back home.
