Three Nigerian pilgrims have been arrested by the Saudi Arabian authorities for the possession of suspected hard drugs.

The arrested pilgrims from Kwara State were part of thousands of Nigerians who departed for the holy city last week to join their Muslims counterparts across the world.


Hajia Fatima Abolore-Jimoh, the Executive Secretary, Kwara Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, confirmed the arrest on Wednesday from Saudi Arabia.

She said the three pilgrims, who were among the first batch of 505 Pilgrims from Kwara, were arrested in Madinnah by Saudi Arabia security operatives.

The executive secretary, who did not disclose the identities of the three suspects, said they were still in the custody of Saudi Arabian authorities.

Abolore-Jimoh said the Saudi Arabian law would certainly take its course on the three suspected drug traffickers.

She described the arrest as unfortunate and painful in spite of several appeals to be of good ambassadors to Kwara and Nigeria.

1,978 pilgrims from the state are performing the 2016 pilgrimage exercise.
The executive secretary said that other pilgrims from the state were still in Madinnah, hale, healthy and in good spirit in spite of the unfortunate incident.
