The Nigerian government has expressed displeasure over the execution of a Nigerian in Saudi Arabia over charges of drugs peddling. This displeasure was expressed as the Foreign Affairs Ministry met with the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Nigeria in Abuja
The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mustapha Suleiman said the Nigerian government was concerned because the Nigerian consulate in Saudi Arabia was not carried along.
In response, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador said, the execution was in line with Sharia laws practiced in Saudi and not prejudiced against Nigeria.
According to the Permanent secretary, the Government of Saudi Arabia has given the identity of the slain woman but that cannot be disclosed until the family is informed.
