The six Committee set up by the  plateau state government to  investigate alleged “Controversial  circumstances“ that  lead the deferment of 2014 Hajj exercise by some Pilgrims  has identified  about 300  intending pilgrims who paid but couldn’t perform the Operation in the state.

The chairman of the committee Hon. Yakubu Gumshar disclosed this during a press Conference to mark the Commencement to the exercise which will last for two weeks.

He assured that all those identify by the Committee who have relevant papers to show that deposit was made to the Board will receive a fair hearing.

According to him, the assignment giving to them is to investigate the problems leading to the deferment of 2014 intending Hajj exercise and nothing more.

The chairman further explained that “ we are not after anybody but we are only doing  what the government asked us to do, and we are not thinking of robbing  any individual  because we don’t know what the state government will do  after we gave our report“.

He said the state governor Simon Bako Lalong has made good use of his Campaign Promise to look into the Complains made by people in the state.
