A pilgrim from Yabo Local Government Area of Sokoto State, Malam Sani Musa, has been allegedly robbed in Madina.

Musa alleged that he was robbed on his way back to the hotel after visiting the Holy Prophet’s Mosque Saturday evening.

Speaking to newsmen, he said he was trailed by the robbers as he missed his way to the hotel.

“We came in group but lost the other members while coming out from the mosques,” he stated.

Musa continued: “One man who noticed my state of confusion offered to help me locate my hotel. He then directed me to one way which he said would lead me there, unknowingly two men were trailing me. They grabbed me into one corner and forced hand over my basic transport allowance (BTA) to them.”

Although he said the robbers were speaking Hausa but he was not sure whether they were Nigerians.

He added that he lost all his money to them, thanking some of his fellow pilgrims who had contributed money for him.

“It is these contributions that I am using to buy food and other necessary things. I really y appreciate their kindness and this act of brotherliness,” he added.

He advised other pilgrims to be watchful and avoid suspicious places and people.

The pilgrim also advised them to always move around in groups. (Daily Trust on Sunday)
