The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON, is saying that at least nine pilgrims from Kano had food poisoning in Saudi Arabia.
NAHCON says contrary to reports that there was a cholera outbreak among pilgrims from Kano, nine pilgrims had diarrhoea after eating unhygienic delicacies from local food vendors in Mecca.
The head of NAHCON’s medical team, Usman Galadima, says with all the advises given to pilgrims to desist from patronizing such unauthorized food, the advises fell into the deaf ears.
The statement advises pilgrims to be conscious of what they consume to avoid food-related illnesses.
