Nov 17, 2015 – 274 Nigerians Confirmed Dead In Saudi Arabia Hajj Stampede, 44 Still Missing – Hajj Commission

The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has confirmed that 274 Nigerian pilgrims died in the Hajj stampede, while 44 are missing and two are still receiving treatment in a Saudi hospital.

Dr. Saleh Okenwa, Commissioner Planning, Research Statistic Information and Library Service (PRSILS) of the commission, told journalists on Monday in Abuja the Saudi Arabian Government should be blamed for the commission’s inability to give accurate account of Nigerian casualties in the 2015 Hajj stampede.

Okenwa expressed the determination of the commission to continue to work with relevant stakeholders to account for the remaining pilgrims that died in the stampede.

“This was a year that the Saudi Arabia government did their best to ensure the success of Hajj exercise and safety of pilgrims, but Allah decreed that this will happen,” Okenwa said.

He said that the Saudi Arabian Government was yet to respond to Nigeria’s request to be part of its committee set up to probe the incident.

“Nigeria requested to be part of the committee investigating the incident, but we are yet to receive response from the Saudi authority,” he said.

The Chairman of NAHCON, Alhaji Abdullahi Mohammed, also said that it was the prerogative of the Saudi Government to decide the composition of the committee investigating the stampede.

He said that Nigeria had yet to receive any compensation pledged by Saudi Arabia for the victims of the September 11 crane crash at the precinct of Ka’aba.

      YES, COMMON SENSE, EVERYLAND ON EARTH IS HOLLY.

      EVERY LAND UNDER THE SKY IS HOLLY, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL FAR BEFORE YOU SEE GOD , BECAUSE GOD MADE YOU IN HIS IMAGE SO, HE IS THE WORDS THAT YOU SPEAK, AND WHEN YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES AND OPEN IT YOU SEE THE LIGHT

      SO , MAY I KNOW WHY PEOPLE COULD NOT UNDERSTAND THAT THIS POWEROF GOD IS JUST WITHIN YOU.
      MAY I KNOW WHY PEOPLE MAKE THEMSELVES BE A SLAVES FOR SOMETHING FOR NOTHING.

      I THINK IT IS TIME TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE ALL UNDER THE SAME SKY , AND GOD IS NOT GOING TO DIVIDE SKY SEPARATELY FOR BABIALARABAYA OR THE SO CALLED JERRICO OR ISRALIMAYA LAND.,JUST BECAUSE THEY CALLED THEMSELVES HOLY OR THE CHOSEN ONES,

      THESE SO CALLED BABIALARABA MADE AFRICA LOOK LIKE AS IF WE ARE THE ONLY DARK CONTINENT,

      BUT THE EVIL THAT THESE PEOPLE DO BEHIND THE CLOSED DOOR WAS MORE THAN THE AFRICA, IF WE ARE TALKING ABOUT VOODOO, THEIR OWN VOODOO WAS MORE THAN AFRICANS.

      BUT, WE HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED THAT THE AFRICAN ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE DOING VOODOO.

      BUT, HOW ABOUT THE VOODOO IN INDIA, OR MALAYSIA , OR IN CHINA , ASIA, GENERALLY , WAS IT THE AFRICAN THAT INTRODUCE THEM TO VOODOO ?,

      THE OYINBO AND THE SO CALLED BABIALARABA ARE RACIST, WHO MADE THE LIVES OF AFRICANS HELL DURING SLAVE TRADE.

      THE OYINBO REFER TO THEIR LAND AS LAND OF OPPORTUNITY, OH, ALL YOU REFUGEE COME , COME HERE , COME TO THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY .

      BECAUSE THEY ARE HAPPY THAT THERE IS A WAR IN YOUR COUNTRIES, SO THAT , THEY WOULD HAVE THE CHANCE TO ENSLAVE YOU.,

      THEY CREATE WAR HERE AND THERE SO THAT YOU WILL RUN TO THEM FOR FOOD BECAUSE THERE LAND ARE THE ONLY HOLLY WHORE,

      THEY WANT YOU TO RUN AWAY FROM YOUR LAND TO THEM ,IN ORDER TO ASK YOU TO WAKE UP BY 4 AM , TO GO AND WASH THEIR TOILETS.

      THE AFRICANS NEED TO WAKE UP,WE NEED TO HELP OURSELVES, AND MAKE AFRICA A LAND OF OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR PEOPLE SO THAT OUR PEOPLE CAN STAY IN THEIR COUNTRIES

      WE NEED TO STOP OYINBO SHOWING SKINNING SKELETON BABIES WHO WERE STARVING TO DEATH., ON THE TELEVISION ALL THE TIME .

      WHERE THEY WOULD BE THROWING THEIR LEFT OVER BAG OF RICE FROM THEIR PLANE, SHOWING PEOPLE WHO STARVING TO DEATH IN ETHIOPIAN, ALL THE TIME .

      WE THE AFRICAN WHO ARE RICH SHOULD BE ABLE TO HELP THE FARMERS SO THAT WE PRODUCE ENOUGH FOOD. WE ALSO NEED TO EDUCATE OUR PEOPLE TO LOVE THEIR COUNTRIES.

      THE ORDER DAY ONE STUPID PREACHER WAS SAYING THAT THE BIBLE SAY GOD CURSE THE AFRICAN , PLEASE IT WAS WRONG , BECAUSE THE SLAVE MASTER WROTE THE BIBLE TO SUIT THEMSELVES .
      THERE ARE RACIST IN THOSE DAYS , AND THERE ARE RACIST WORDS IN THE BIBLE AGAINST THE BLACKS.

      THE SO CALLED PREACHERS NEED TO UPDATE THEMSELVES, BY PREACHING THE RIGHT THING, AND MAKE PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD NEED OUR HELP ON THIS EARTH, BECAUSE THE PRIMITIVE FEELS THAT GOD IS THE ONE TO DO EVERYTHING FOR THEM,

      THIS IDEOLOGY DESTROYED MANY PEOPLE, THEY END UP TRAVEL FAR TO BABIALARABA, FROM RABA TO JERRICO, IN THE BELIEVE THAT WHEN THEY COME BACK, THEY WOULD BE A MILLIONAIRE.
