Intending Female Pilgrims Apprehensive

Intending female pilgrims from Federal Capital Territory, Kogi and Niger states, yesterday expressed fear over what they described as unjust and unfair treatment of Nigerian women on arrival at Saudi Arabia.

“Some of the women you see here suffer to gather money for this trip and we don’t and they should not expect us to pay for two people because we want to go and perform hajj operation. 

“It is mandatory for any one as Muslim who can afford it to perform it and we are surprise with the way other women who left before us were treated by Saudi authority,” some of the pilgrims at the FCT Hajj Camp said.

Daily Trust observed that only few of them were ready to travel with their Muharram as requested by Saudi government.
