NAHCON seeks NDLEA’s partnership on sensitising Nigerian pilgrims to Saudi Arabia on drug trafficking

National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has sought the support of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on sensitizing Nigerian pilgrims to Saudi Arabia on the danger in trafficking drugs to the Kingdom, where the penalty for such actions when caught is death.

This was disclosed on Tuesday when the commission’s chairman, Alhaji Zikrullah Kunle Hassan, led a delegation to the headquarters of the drug-fighting agency.

He added that NAHCON is particularly concerned over the Nigerian-Saudi Arabian route since the Kingdom is one of the precincts where the Commission’s major obligations are discharged.

While expressing confidence that Saudi Arabian authorities will soon lift its ban on entry into the Kingdom for Nigerian Muslims to perform Umrah and hopefully the 2022 Hajj, Hassan said it was NAHCON’s tradition to partner with NDLEA in sensitising pilgrims on the adverse effect of trafficking drugs to Saudi Arabia during the pilgrimage.
