He said the airlift of pilgrims to and from Saudi Arabia has been very smooth despite the stampede that occurred.

He described the incident as unprecedented in the history of pilgrimage operation, saying however that it was the will of God.

The aircraft marked "Abeke"- B767-300ER with 221 pilgrims arrived the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos at 12 noon via PortHarcourt.

The National Pilgrims Commission of Nigeria {NAHCON} contracted Medview airline to airlift pilgrims from states in South-West, South East, South-South zones, Borno State and members of the armed forces.

Medview Airline is the first among other carriers to complete the airlift of pilgrims back to Nigeria in record time.
