Nigerian pilgrims to Israel have been warned against any attempt to abscond at this year’s spiritual exercise.
The Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, Rev. Yakubu Pam, has said such a pilgrim will be arrested and prosecuted.
Pam gave the warning at Yola International Airport during the official airlift of over 270 pilgrims from Taraba and Gombe states.
He insisted that whoever absconded would be arrested and prosecuted by the Federal Government.
Taraba and Gombe Christian pilgrims’ participation in this year’s exercise is coming after the return of over 300 pilgrims from Enugu State, who participated in the spiritual exercise.
Addressing the pilgrims, the Executive Secretary of the commission charged them to be good ambassadors while in the Holy Land.
He also urged them not to abscond, describing it as a grave offence.Follow us on social media
