Hajj: Bauchi Disqualifies Four Pregnant Female Pilgrims

The Bauchi state Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board has banned four female intending pilgrims, who were found to be pregnant and sick, from performing the 2016 Hajj.

The Speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly and the state’s deputy Amirul Hajj, Kawuwa Damuna, told journalists in Bauchi yesterday that three females were discovered pregnant while one was barred on health ground.

Damuna commended the management of the airline contracted to convey the pilgrims to the Islamic holy land for its commitments. He said the exercise would be completed in good time as it has two flights daily.
