A Sharia Court in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, has sentenced Mamman Lugga Kwakwazo, a pilgrim from Goronyo Local Government Area of Sokoto State, to three months in prison.

He was jailed for claiming a purse he found at the Holy Mosque in Makkah on Friday.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday in Makkah, Secretary of Goronyo LGA, Lawal Dalhatu Yarkasuwa, said: “The pilgrim found a white pilgrim’s missing Kwagiri (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 he was arraigned the following, Saturday.”

Yarkasuwa disclosed that the convicted pilgrim, who was not having any identification, was later brought to Sokoto pilgrims’ accommodation, where he was confirmed to be a pilgrim.

“The convicted pilgrim has been barred from entering Saudi Arabia for the next five years,” Alhaji Yarkasuwa added.
