Nigerian pilgrim dies in Makkah

National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, has confirmed the death of a female Nigerian pilgrim in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.

Head of the Medical Team of NAHCON, Ibrahim Kana, confirmed the development while speaking with journalists in Makkah, yesterday.
He said: “On the Makkah mortality, she was our patient; a known diabetic and we referred her to King Abdulaziz Hospital in Makkah before she died yesterday.
“We have already captured her on our Electronic Health Medical Records System.”
It was gathered that the dead pilgrim hailed from Ungogo Local Government Area of Kano State.
The identity of the pilgrim is being withheld because the incident is yet to be communicated to her family, in line with NAHCON’s practice of awaiting formal directive on such incidents from the concerned state before telling relations of about such incidents.
