  • How many times do we have to see Nigerians being treated like rags? This was the question that  ran through my mind immediately I got the news that over 750 Nigerian female pilgrims in Saudi Arabia
    were detained in Jeddah and Madinah.

    Vice President Sambo subsequently  summoned the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Khaled Abdrabuh, to his office where he gave the government of Saudi Arbia  24-hours to expedite action in resolving the crises.

    Unfortunately, the response from the Ambassador wasn't all that great. Abdrabuh said that Nigeria was not being treated in isolation, and that all the countries participating in the Hajj were affected.

    He said that the issue of Muharram for female pilgrims was not a new policy, but that the Saudi government decided to be flexible in the past.

    Alot of critics have registered their displeasure at this treatment. The last time it was Nigeria men who were dehumanized and now, the Saudi Government have turned their boots to our innocent women. I do not know if this is a fact, but it seems that Nigerians have been their target and why this is so remains a misery.
