No fewer than two Nigerian pilgrims from Kwara State have died in Saudi Arabia, according a report by the Kwara State Muslim Pilgrims Board.

They are; Saliu Mohammed and Hawawu Mohammed of batches 3 and 9 of the airlifts respectively, NEWSNGR reports.

NEWSNGR gathered that while Saliu (batch 3) died in an intensive care unit of a public hospital in Madina after brief illness, Hawawu (Batch 9) died following what Saudi authorities have investigated and found to be an unfortunate suicidal episode from the rooftop of her apartment in Madina.

The statement said: “We deeply regrets these sad events, but submits totally to the decree and ultimate knowledge of Allaah in all affairs.”

The Executive Secretary Kwara State Pilgrims Welfare Board, Abdulsalam Abdulkadir, therefore sent his profound condolences to their families, asking Allaah to grant them comfort and forgive the deceased.
