BY FRANCIS IWUCHUKWU, LAGOS 

“The protest this morning at the Ilorin International Airport was by some intending pilgrims from neighbouring states.”

This position was made known by Rafiu Ajakaye, the Chief Press Secretary, CPS, to the governor of Kwara State, AndulRahman AbdulRazaq while reacting to the protest.

According to Ajakaye, “We wish to clarify that every intending pilgrim registered with the Kwara State Government has since been airlifted to Saudi Arabia for the 2019 Hajj. 

“There are a total 2,026 pilgrims from the state, the last batch of whom took off on 24 July, 2019, according to figures from the state pilgrims' board.

“This has no connection whatsoever with the Kwara State Government or officials of Kwara  State Muslim Pilgrims Board as is being claimed by some persons.”
