Nigerian pilgrim sentenced to three months in prison in Saudi Arabia for claiming someone's purse


A Nigerian pilgrim in Saudi Arabia, Mamman Kwakwazo from Goronyo local government area in Sokoto state, has been sentenced to three months by a Sharia court for claiming a purse he found at a Holy Mosque in Makkah. The incident occurred at the Holy Mosque in Makkah, on Friday.
The Secretary of Goronyo LGA, Lawal Yar-tsakuwa, while confirming the sentence said

"The pilgrim found a white pilgrim’s missing waist purse inside the Grand mosque on that fateful day (Friday). It was also said that Mamman Kwakwazo reportedly refused to give back the purse to the owner who was said to have seen it with him immediately he (the owner) lost it. A hot argument was said to have ensued between them. Later they reported the matter to the Saudi security agents and he was immediately arrested. He was consequently detained at a police outpost at the Holy Mosque and was arraigned the following Saturday,” he said.
According to the Secretary, Mamman has been barred from entering Saudi Arabia for the next five years.
