He said that the drug found with the pilgrims was Tramador, a contraband in Saudi Arabia, which the pilgrims had been warned against.

The secretary also said that two other pilgrims from the state died due to ill health before Arafat Day.

Abdulkareem said that the last batch of pilgrims from the state arrived Nigeria on Oct. 11.

He warned pilgrims to always comply with the rules and regulations of the Saudi authorities to avoid being arrested or tarnishing the country’s image.
