The Kebbi Government Officials have rescued three Nigerian pilgrims missing in Mecca, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Speaking in Mecca on Tuesday, one of the KGOs, the Executive Director, Women’s Right Advancement and Protection Alternative (WRAPA), Kebbi branch, Nasir Idris, revealed that they had rescued a woman from Kamba Local Government Area.

He said the woman missed her way back home, instead, she further went behind the Al-Masjid Al-Haram (Kaaba) leading to a different area.

“As KGOs, we have to intervene and redirect her back home through a taxi service,” he said.

“We recently rescued two women from Bauchi State who missed their way to their hotel but the quick intervention of the KGOs led them to their hotels without any difficulty,
” Idris said.

Mr Idris also spoke about some activities of the KGOs, saying some of them sometimes assist in translation and stand as intermediaries due to the language barrier.

The CEO said the humanitarian services being rendered by the KGOs would be sustained throughout the Hajj operation.

Idris added that they also offer useful suggestions to committees to ensure the success of the Hajj exercise.

He also advised the pilgrims to always move in groups to avoid missing their directions.

He said, ”They should always be cautious in spending their basic travelling allowance.

”They should also be routinely asking the clerics for guidance on the proper Hajj rituals for them to perform an acceptable Haj.”
