Drug Trafficking’: president Buhari orders AGF To Take Action Over Detained Student In Saudi Arabia

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the AGF, Mr. Abubakar Malami, to quickly intercede on account of Zainab Aliyu, a study confined in Saudi Arabia for drug trafficking.

This was uncovered by Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the senior the senior special assistant to the President on Diaspora Affairs.

In an announcement made through her twitter handle, the president’s senior special assistant said on Monday that Buhari has requested that the AGF secure the arrival of Zainab and some others in a comparative circumstance.

She stated, “We have been on this, over the most recent two weeks. @MBuhari has coordinated AGF to make important move. We are gaining great ground. She will be back, alongside 2 others in a similar circumstance”.

Zainab who is a student of Maitama Sule University, Kano, was arrested after a banned drug, tramadol, was found in her bag. She claimed it was planted in her luggage by unknown persons.

The student had reportedly travelled from Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport in company with her mother, Mrs. Maryam Aliyu, and sister, Hajara Aliyu, but was arrested over allegations that a bag bearing her name tag contained the unlawful substance.

Reports suggest that it was later discovered that Zainab like some others, was a victim of a cartel that specialises in planting hard drugs and banned substances in travellers’ bags.

Some members of the cartel are said to already be in the custody of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NAFDAC).

It should be noted that drug trafficking is a serious offence in Saudi Arabia which punishment for is execution, not even with an option of life imprisonment.
