Kii confirmed the plane's engine had malfunctioned but said every member of the team was alright. At home the Rivers government swung into action.

Our sources hint government officials made contact with the stranded pilgrims.

Government's support is believed to have given confidence to the Christian tourists, especially when it got the tour guides responsible for the pilgrimage to arrange a fresh aircraft to airlift the pilgrims home.

Tuesday night, aviation officials checked in pilgrims but not every one had an opportunity to make the batch.

As 12-15a.m Tuesday, not all who were crowded at the airport were given the nod.

Those who made it to the Departure Hall were issued pilgrims passports, suggesting they could now look forward to jetting out.
