According to Vanguard, the deceased, identified as Alhaja Folashade Lawal, from Oshodi Local Government Area of Lagos State, died while heading to Jumarat to perform one of the Islamic rites— throwing pebbles— at 3a.m.

Hear AbdulHakeem: “We were told she slumped on her way to Jamarat to throw pebbles, but unfortunately she gave up from that point. Doctors told us that she had high blood pressure.”

The Amirul Hajj could not immediately confirm if the 56-year-old woman was receiving medical attention before the incident.
