The incident occurred last Thursday. The actress, who came to perform hajj, fell ill due to the stress associated with the hajj exercise. It was observed that Afolabi has been showing symptoms of illness while in Madinah.
She was seen sleeping in the bus during Ziyara (visitation to historical sites). While Afolabi joined the other pilgrims to some of the sites, at other sites, she sat in the bus. It was learnt that the eight hour drive from Madinah to Makkah last Tuesday took a toll on her.
According to a medical practitioner attached to the Lagos State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board (LSMPWB), Dr Abideen Aro, Afolabi had symptoms such as fever, headache, loss of appetite and weakness.
However, the Head of the Medical Team have been directed to see her and other pilgrims down with an illness.
