The Lagos State Government has announced that the 2023 Hajj pilgrims from the state will begin their return journey back home today.

In a statement, the state Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board said the Amir-ul-Hajj, Anofiu Elegushi, made the announcement during a press briefing on the Hajj operations.

The Amir-ul-Hajj disclosed that the return journey would begin “with a ‘special flight’ expected to airlift all the elderly and those with medical challenges”, adding that “the airlifting exercise would run through 8, 9 and 10 July until the 22nd of July, when the officials would be airlifted.”

On subsequent pilgrimages, Elegushi said: “As of next year, the purchase of the Hajj form, payment for the Hajj fare, and all other processes will be done online in order to reduce paperwork and time”.
