Hajj Pilgrim, Oloshogbo Dies In Saudi Arabia.

Lagos State Hajj pilgrim, Idris Oloshogbo, has died in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.

Secretary, Lagos State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, Saheed Onipede, made the announcement in a statement through the agency spokesperson, Taofeek Lawal, on Wednesday.

Onipede said the 68-year-old deceased from Shomolu Local Government, died while eating his food in the evening (after Solat Maghrib).

Oloshogbo was confirmed dead by medical experts in the country shortly after returning from Tawaf (circumambulation) of the Holy Kaaba in Makkah.

Onipede stressed that, while the cause of his death was yet to be medically ascertained as of press time, the death could not be unconnected with high blood pressure, BP, and the stress he passed through during the tawaf.

He appealed to other pilgrims to exercise caution and restrain from overstressing themselves before the commencement of the real Hajj rites which are yet to be fulfilled.
