The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad, who is the Amirul Hajj, has condemned the action of the Saudi authorities, describing it as “an insult to Nigeria and to this country’s millions of Muslims”.

    It is a wellknown islamic principle that awoman is not allowed to travel without a guardian.Many saudi women do not perform hajj if they didnt get one of their mahrams ready to go with them.because the islamic schorlars have said :one of the conditions 4 a woman to go 4 hajj is presence of mahram and if she does not have any ,then hajj is not obligatory to her.and others said it permissable 4 her to follow agroup of well trusted and responsible men ,all these on the condtion of her being welldressed in her islamic outfits.and this is never meant to be an insult to a woman but it is rather a protection designed 4 her by Allah ,against any sexual harrassment or any difficulty she may come across ,because of her known weak nature.4 islam is a religion of rationalism.and this is just what the saudis meant.
    they also dont tolerate women remaining behind after hajj ,just to engage in some misbehaviours that are also contrary to islamic teachings .but nigerians dont listen.and this is why they decide to take it tough with them this time around ,at least to make them know there is some thing called “rules and regulations”.a womans mahram has so much clossness and authority over her that he can be forced to produce her before leaving or has also to remain behind .

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
