It's not over yet for Ogun Hajj deportees - board

The Ogun State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board stated on Wednesday that  the 18 pilgrims deported by Saudi  Arabia authorities under its Hajj  policy   might still participate in this year’s exercise.

Mr Qudus Kafidipe, the  Information Officer of  the board, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  in Abeokuta that relevant bodies were taking  necessary steps to fast track the processing of their  travel documents.

He said another 243 pilgrims from Ogun arrived Medina on Wednesday.

Kafidipe said the 243 pilgrims that left the state after the resumption of the exercise were not affected by the Hajj  policy.

The arrival of the latest batch, he said,  brought the total number of Ogun pilgrims to 1,290 out of the 1,550 expected to participate in the exercise.

According to him, those already in the Holy Land are in high spirits  and have been participating in the different rites in  Medina and Mecca.
