Three Ghanaian Muslim pilgrims, who were part of this year’s Hajj have died in Saudi Arabia.

The hajj board confirmed they are made up of two females who were said to have died from natural causes and one male who died from a medical condition.

One of the females died in her sleep whilst the other two died at a medical facility.

Their families in Ghana have since been informed and they have given consent for them to be buried in Saudi Arabia.

In all a total of 6,350 Ghanaian pilgrims moved to partake in the 2017 pilgrimage.

The pilgrimage to the holy land of Mecca is one of the pillars of Islam which must be fulfilled if they he or she can.
