Kemi Afolabi Hospitalised In Saudi Arabia

Popular Nigerian actress, Kemi Afolabi, was rushed to a hospital in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, after falling ill due to the stress related with hajj exercise. It was reported that the actress had been showing symptoms of illness while in Madinah as she was seen sleeping in the bus during Ziyara (visitation to historical sites).

While Kemi Afolabi joined the other pilgrims to some of the sites, at other sites, she sat in the bus. It was also learnt that the eight hour drive from Madinah to Makkah last Tuesday took a toll on her. 

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