The Plateau Muslim Pilgrim Welfare Board, says it has flushed out touts who collaborate with some “dubious” members of staff to cheat intending pilgrims.
Alhaji Salisu Musa, the Executive Secretary of the board, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Jos in an
interview that those affected had been defrauding unsuspecting pilgrims annually.
“We embarked on an operation to completely flush out the touts and also some members of staff we consider to be bad eggs.
“We used our contacts at the higher level to have those staff transferred from the board to other agencies,” he said.
