Fourteen Adamawa state indigenes have been confirmed in the 2015  Hajj stampede that claimed over 700 lives.

While presenting the hajj report to the State Executive Council on Thursday, October 29, the Executive Secretary of the state Pilgrims Welfare Board, Engineer Umar Bobboi, made it known that nine of the deceased died at the stampede site, while three others were killed at different places - and two still missing.

Bobboi added that only one female is among the dead people.

However, the State Executive Council has constituted a committee to visit the victims’ families and also approved the presentation death certificate to them, as obtained from the Saudi authorities.
