Eight hundred and forty-five pilgrims of the first and second batches from Ogun State, led by officials of Ogun State Muslim intending Pilgrims Welfare Board, have arrived Medina, Saudi Arabia, to perform the holy pilgrimage.  

Confirming the arrival of the pilgrims to journalists in Medina, the Executive Secretary of the Board, Alhaji Dauda Salau, said the third batch of intending pilgrims were expected to land before the end of the week, expressing gratitude to Allah for a safe journey.

Alhaji Salau attributed the success of the state’s Hajj operations so far to Governor Dapo Abiodun’s support, promising that the intending pilgrims would give a good account of themselves throughout the exercise.

He advised the pilgrims to keep in mind and utilised the information acquired from the sensitisation programmes organised for them prior to their departure, imploring them to follow the rules and obey the officials throughout their stay.

Reacting, one of the intending pilgrims, Alhaji Tijani Fadilullai, said the journey from the Hajj Camp in Lagos to Medina was flawless, commending the state officials for their diligence.
