President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with His Majesty, King Salman, the people of Saudi Arabia and the worldwide Islamic community over the tragic loss of lives in yesterday’s crane collapse at the Grand Mosque of Mecca.
As details of the deaths and injuries sustained in the unfortunate incident unfold, President Buhari directed the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Nigerian Embassy in Saudi Arabia to closely monitor developments and take necessary action to ensure the security and well-being of all Nigerian pilgrims.
President Buhari, according to a statement by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, also urged all Nigerians to pray for the continued safety of their compatriots who are currently in Saudi Arabia for this year’s Hajj.
He prays that Almighty Allah will receive the souls of those killed in the incident and grant the injured speedy recovery.
