Alleged Drug Trafficking : Another Nigerian To Regain Freedom…As Saudi Arabia Releases Zainab

Another Nigerian, Ibrahim Abubakkar, alleged of drug trafficking will also be released on Wednesday to the Nigerian government from the Saudi Arabian Custody.
This development was made known by the Personal Assistant (PA) to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, after an undergraduate, Zainab Aliyu was released on Tuesday.
 Zainab’s freedom was secured by the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN).
It would be recalled that Zainab, a student of Maitama Sule University, Kano, was arrested after a banned drug, Tramadol, was found in her bag. 
But she had claimed that same was planted in her luggage by unknown persons.
Zainab had travelled from Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport in company with her mother, Mrs. Maryam Aliyu, and sister, Hajara Aliyu, but she was arrested over allegations that a bag bearing her name tag contained the unlawful substance.
Zainab, who was accused of entering Saudi Arabia with an illegal dosage of Tramadol, was later discovered to be a victim of a cartel that specialised in keeping hard drugs in travellers’ bags, some of whom were already in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.
