Two had been evicted leaving Cross, Angel and Emmanuel safe.

The newsmen report that there are currently nine housemates in the show: Liquorose, Whitemoney, Saga, Pere, Emmanuel, Nini, Cross, Queen and Angel.

In another development,  Police in Ogun on Sunday warned the public against organizing prayer sessions at night, especially at forest area, to avoid being victims of kidnappers.

Police Spokesman in Ogun, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, gave the warning in a statement made available to newsmen, in Ota, Ogun.

Oyeyemi noted that the Ogun state police command has observed with great concern that, despite the series of warnings and security tips from the command, some members of public are still in the habit of organizing prayer sessions in the forest, thereby making themselves easy prey for kidnappers.

“However, in as much as the command is not oblivious of right to freedom of religion, it is worthy of note that the present security situation in the country does not favorably disposed to organizing prayer sessions in isolated places,” the PPRO said.

He appealed to the public to refrain from creating opportunities for kidnappers to operate as the command was working assiduously to get rid of the criminal elements, who turned kidnapping into business.

Oyeyemi explained that security should be seen everybody’s business and “we should all play our part in securing ourselves and our property, adding that after all the scriptures even enjoined us to watch and pray.”

“However, if there is any compelling reason to embark on such prayer sessions, the organizers should report to the nearest police station for advice and possible security patrol of the area.

…Executive Secretary blames increment from N2.89m on rising operational costs, exchange rate fluctuations and inflation

Participation at the 2024 Pilgrimage in Adamawa may shrink as the State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Commission has announced N4.679 million fare, for this year’s Hajj.

What goes for Adamawa, may similarly affect the other states of the country, as hajj fare in 2023 was only N2.89 million.

The Executive Secretary of the commission, Malam Abubakar Salihu, made the announcement at a news briefing on Tuesday in Yola.

Salihu attributed the increment in the Hajj fare to rising operational costs, exchange rate fluctuations and inflation.
He said that the decision was made after careful consideration and consultations with relevant stakeholders.
According to him, the commission is committed to providing the best possible services, while ensuring transparency and accountability in the utilisation of the funds.

He called on intending pilgrims to always adhere to the rules and regulations both in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia to enhance a hitch-free and successful pilgrimage.

Salihu also stressed the need for intending pilgrims to comply with the procedures and protocols established by the commission.
He emphasised the importance of continuous orientation and education for the intending pilgrims.
