Alleged drug trafficking! Zainab Aliyu regains freedom from Saudi Arabia Prison
Zainab Aliyu,with officials of the Nigerian Consulate in Jeddah, shortly after she was freed from Saudi prison
Zainab’s release came after President Buhari directed the attorney general of the federation to take necessary action on her detention by Saudi Arabia.
It was learnt she was falsely accused of drug peddling in Saudi Arabia and was arrested in December 2018 with Tramadol, a banned substance.
Investigations by the Nigerian government have since revealed that the drug was planted in Zainab’s luggage by a cartel that specialises in planting drugs in the bags of unsuspecting travellers. #akoba #adaba #olorunmajekari
