The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria yesterday while addressing newsmen in Mecca on last Thursday’s hajj stampede said 10 more bodies of Nigerian pilgrims have been discovered, bringing the total number of Nigerians who died in the stampede to 64, and not 54 like it earlier announced.
Alhaji Uba Mana, the Director, Public Affairs of the commission, also said that
71 were so far wounded and not 61 like they also announced. 244 pilgrims have also been declared missing, he said.
Of the 64 dead pilgrims, Mana said, 46 were transported to Mecca by state pilgrims’ welfare agencies while 18 were transported by private tour operators. 59 of those injured were also brought by state pilgrims’ welfare agencies and 12 by private tour operators, he disclosed.
