Again, the Federal Government has rescued another Nigerian Malam Ibrahim, from being executed by Saudi Arabia authorities over drug related matters.
This is the second time in ten months.
Chairperson of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, announced the cheering news to stakeholders on Migration and Diaspora Affairs in Abuja.
She said Mr Ibrahim is an innocent Nigerian that fell victim of a drug planting and trafficking syndicate when he traveled to Saudi Arabia in March 2017 for Hajj.
On getting to Jeddah airport, Dabiri-Erewa said, he was held, charged, tried in Saudi Arabia and found guilty despite being innocent before a case of retrial was granted.
She explained further that the re-trial which was facilitated by the multi- government collaboration of NIDCOM, Attorney-General of the Federation and Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Zamfara State government came up on February 18, 2020 with necessary documentary evidence and he was discharged and freed of the allegations of drugs.
