Saraki was attacked by an irate mob protesting unpaid workers’ salaries last year September at the praying ground. His absence thus fuelled the feeling that he was avoiding another round of attack.

But Saraki, who wrote on his Twitter handle in reaction to the story publish on his absence at praying ground, said: “A quick search would show I usually spend last 10 days (of the Ramadan) in lesser hajj.”
