Danmallam stated that with the return flights recorded so far from Saudi Arabia, the board had returned all the FCT contingent that participated in the religious exercise this year.

The director gave praise to Allah for the success recorded, noting that the board did not record any casualties or serious health challenges.

He explained that all the contingent exhibited maturity and good conduct throughout the exercise.

He commended their satisfactory behaviour as good ambassadors of the territory and the country at large.

He disclosed that none of the FCT pilgrims absconded during the exercise.

He recalled that the airlift of intending pilgrims from the FCT to Saudi Arabia commenced on June 10 and that the entire contingent was conveyed to Saudi Arabia in five flights, which ended on July 3 with a total of 1,918 pilgrims.

Also, according to the director, all the pilgrims visited Madinah before the performance of the hajj proper.

The return journey, he stated, commenced on Saturday.
