Following Nollywood actress Kemi Afolabi’s illness in Mecca after she broke down due to stress emanating from Hajj exercise, a medical practitioner said she brought it upon herself.

According to the medical practitioner attached to the Lagos State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board (LSMPWB), Dr Abideen Aro, the actress had symptoms such as fever, headache, loss of appetite and weakness.

Aro of the Lagos State Accident and Emergency Centre said: “We have warned the pilgrims before leaving Nigeria to use anti-malarial drugs as prophylaxis. But unfortunately, in her case, she didn’t use the drug due to oversight.”

“After noticing those symptoms, I alerted the Head of Lagos State Medical Team, Dr Muhammad Isa, who made an arrangement for an ambulance. I and Nurse Zaynab Sarumi from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) accompanied her in an ambulance to the Nigeria Hajj Commission (NAHCON) Clinic where an assessment of malaria fever was made and she was placed on Intra-Muscular Injections for three days on an out-patient basis.”

Afolabi had taken ill last Thursday and had been showing signs of illness while in Medina.

The actress was seen in the vehicle while other pilgrims moved around, after the eight-hour drive from Medina to Mecca apparently took a toll on her.
