The statement continued;

When I enquired about his; I was told by a director that the Commander forwarded the names of his wife; brother and SSA to be included, and when he was told that he had to exclude one person from among the three he presented, he chose to include his wife and his other (sic) on the trip.

I further gathered that when he (Ibn Sina) was presented with the choice of picking between the SSA and his brother, he opined that it wasn’t his obligation to take the SSA on the trip, and went ahead to take his brother.

Meanwhile, the Hisbah commander denied the allegation, saying that the replacement was from the pilgrims’ board.

Also commenting, the chairman of the commission’s Board of Directors, Sheikh Shehi Shehi has promised to launch an investigation to unravel the circumstances leading to the alleged replacement without due process.

The allegation comes amid claims by the Hisbah board that it upholds moral standards according to the dictates of Islam. Hisbah has continued its push for the Islamic agenda in the North.
