Lagos Begins Airlift Of Pilgrims (Photos)

The first batch of pilgrims sponsored by the Lagos state government have departed for Jerusalem. The pilgrims numbering about 350 were airlifted to the holy land last weekend.

Before their departure, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Home Affairs, Mr. Hundeyin Adeola urged the pilgrims to be excellent ambassadors of Lagos state and Nigeria. He admonished them to live an exemplary life in order to stimulate the interests of others to embark on the holy pilgrimage.

Leading the pilgrims on the trip was Mr Olayinka Oye-Bamgbose. Medical teams, clerics and media officials of the state also accompanied the pilgrims on the trip.
