There are indications that more than 900 pilgrims died in Saudi Arabia during 2024 Hajj.

Among them is a woman leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos State chapter, Alhaja Ramota Bankole,

Bankole reportedly celebrated her 60th birthday recently before her death, allegedly caused by intense heatwave in Saudi Arabia, while performing a Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mr Seye Oladejo, told newsmen on Thursday that late Bankole was a committed member of the party and lived a life full of inspiration for the women.
