No pilgrims absconded in Israel - NCPC

The Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) has refuted a story published in the Sun Newspaper on Friday, November 1, 2013 that two pilgrims absconded in Israel.

In a release by the commission, the Head, Media Unit, NCPC, Mr. Celestine Ogugua stated, "I wish to state categorically that the story is false and unfounded. The Commission has not recorded any single incidence of abscondment in the on-going October/December Christian Pilgrimage Exercise".

Ogugua stated further, "It is on record that in the last two years, NCPC has maintained zero abscondment due to effective screening mechanism of intending pilgrims and thorough security checks deployed by the Commission and Israeli authorities".

NCPC disclosed that it is too early to report on defection in Israel when the contingent or group under which the pilgrims travelled are still undergoing pilgrimage exercise in the Holy Land.

The NCPC image maker hinted, "Until the pilgrims return to Nigeria, one cannot ascertain whether any pilgrim absconded or not".

He advised the media to always verify their facts from the appropriate authorities before going to the press to avoid misleading the public and avoid tarnishing the good work of the commission under the able leadership of Mr. Kennedy John Opara in recent past.
