The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has released the official figures of Nigerians still missing several days after the tragedy that killed over 749 Hajj pilgrims in Mina, Saudi Arabia.
The official death toll has jumped to 64.
NAHCON confirms yesterday that over 244 Nigerians are still missing.
President Buhari ordered NAHCON to account for every Nigerian in Saudi for 2015 Hajj.
NAHCON director said about 71 Nigerians are currently receiving treatment in Saudi Arabia.
He further said that the deceased Nigerians were from Zamfara, Cross River, Ekiti, Borno, Adamawa, Plateau, Bauchi, Sokoto, Rivers, Taraba, KEbbi, Kaduna, Katsina, Kwra, Niger, Nasarawa, Ogun and Ondo State.
Last Thursday’s stampede occurred on the way to the Jamrat complex, the devil stoning site in Mina.
Survivors blamed Egyptian pilgrims for the stampede while Saudi authorities blamed African migrants for the tragedy to claimed the lives of over 700 devout Muslims.

I have always have my doubt about Islam this just confirm to me that it is a demonic religion enforced on gullible africans by Saudi Arabia. Hajj is one of the largest revenue generating venture for Saudi Arabia, the no 1 sponsor of terrorrism.
Every muslim is indirectly sponsoring terrorism by patronizing the center of Jihadism in the world.
There is still space at the cross for the lucky survivors come to Jesus for a life of fulfillment.

This shows you how idiotic the ****** can be. Saudi Arabia holy land…but holy shit if it were a holy land it would have saved them, nearly 800people gave up the ghost while trying to stone the devil. (Awon ode) Remember guys a crane fell and killed over hundred people before this. They trust the Saudi authorities they think they are God. A man/woman visits Mecca and come back to Naija for instance and become Alhaji/Alhaja (meaning visitor) *****.
