Three Delta pilgrims abscond in Jerusalem
The Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa has expressed an in-depth shock as three members of Delta State pilgrimages has gone missing in Israel.
According to some sources, it is believed that the three missing persons absconded and not missing.
The governor explained that there was a need for a thorough probe devoid of sentiment to prevent any recurrence of pilgrims absconding the moment they arrive in the holy land.
He said, “The issue of people absconding in Jerusalem rather than going for the purpose for which they were sent there is becoming very worrisome and a lot of work has to be done to check this trend. There has been information showing that three persons absconded during the pilgrimage.
However, the Governor made this disclosure at the Swearing-in of Apostle Sylvanus Okorite as his Special Adviser in the area of Religious matters.
