The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria, NAHCON has alerted Nigerians about a false advert circulated on Instagram and other social media platforms claiming that it is official that the nation got 50,000 slots for the 2021 Hajj
The fake advert called on intending pilgrims to deposit money to secure their Hajj seat.
The NAHCON Chairman Zikirullah Kunle Hassan, therefore, notified the general public that the said information is false and clarified that when such communication takes place from Saudi Arabia, NAHCON would not hesitate to officially disclose the news and its plans on the distribution of slots to respective states
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has neither notified NAHCON of any plans to conduct the 2021 Hajj nor the number of slots allocated to the country,” he stated.
The Commission hence seizes this medium to warn Nigerian intending pilgrims against falling into the hands of fraudsters in the name of Hajj or Umrah registration.
