The Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has warned intending Hajj pilgrims against drug trafficking.
Hajia Habiba Zubair, an official of the agency gave the warning in Ilorin while addressing those traveling to Saudi Arabia to perform the 2022 Hajj.
Zubair, who warned the pilgrims against drugs trafficking, said the Saudi authorities would not tolerate anything such except prescription drugs.
“You should avoid drugs capable of getting you arrested”, she admonished.
Zubair also admonished the pilgrims not to take kolanuts or ground pepper to Saudi Arabia as they would be confiscated.
“Do not take any luggage from strangers in any circumstance as you may be tricked into taking on prohibitive substances,’’ she warned.
The NDLEA official also told the intending pilgrims to always wear the state’s uniform while in Saudi Arabia for easy identification.
