One of the officials of the Nasarawa State Pilgrims Welfare Agency, Malam Lawal Ahmad said that the pilgrims were earlier checked and nothing indiscriminating was found with them.

“They were checked and okayed by the custom only to be called by some police officers who kept them waiting for nine hours before asking them to enter into one room,” he said

Ahmad added: “They were adamant because they didn’t know their motive, so they forced them into the room and started beating them up, as a result one of them sustained injuries on the head.”

When contacted the Coordinator, National Hajj Commission in Madina, Dr. Bello Tambuwal confirmed the incident.

He said the commission had reported the matter to the appropriate authority for investigation and further action as they would not allow their pilgrims to be maltreated unjustly.

However, Ahmad said the injured pilgrim had been treated and discharged.
