A Nigerian pilgrim arriving in Saudi Arabia for the annual pilgrimage next week got the shock of his life when he was told a big scissors was detected inside his belly.
The unnamed pilgrim was reportedly passing through the security metal detector at the airport in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah, when he was flagged.
He was told by the police to step back, remove all metal items on his possession and walk through the detector again. He did and the alarms went off again.
According to the Saudi daily ‘Al Wata’n, “He was taken for a scan at the hospital and the big surprise was that it showed there is a big scissors inside his abdomen”.
“When he was told about it, the pilgrim got a shock. He said that he underwent a surgery nearly 15 years ago but never had any pain”, the paper added.
It was unclear if the pilgrim was later allowed into the Gulf kingdom to undertake the Muslim pilgrimage.
