2016 Hajj: Don’t bring kolanuts into our country, S/Arabia warns pilgrims

Jigawa Pilgrims Welfare Board (JSPWB), says the state government will not intervene for anybody who is caught with kola nuts in Saudi Arabia.
The Head of Operations of the Board, Alhaji Ahmed Labbo, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Dutse on Wednesday.

He added that Saudi authorities had warned intending pilgrims against exportation of kola nuts to the Holy Land.

`` Saudi Government has banned pilgrims from taking kola nuts to the holy cities of Medina and Mecca during the pilgrimage.’’
He said Saudi Arabia had warned that any­body who did not com­ply will be prosecuted according to the law of the land.

``I am, therefore, advising our pilgrims to desist because the state government will not intervene for anybody who is caught in the act.
``It is very necessary for us to note this be­cause the Saudi Government had issued serious warning that it will not allow anybody to take kola nuts to their coun­try’’, he said.
