A Nigerian, Ibrahim Ibrahim, has been freed in Saudi Arabia of drug trafficking after 3 years in detention.

Freedom came the way of Ibrahim following the efforts of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission and Zamfara State Govt.

“A delegation from Nigerians in Diaspora Commission and Zamfara State Govt arrived in Jeddah with documentary evidence provided by NIDCOM for the trial slated for 18/02/2020,” Chairman, NiDCOM, Abike Dabiri- Erewa tweeted on the issue.

 

Zamfara Commissioner of Special Duties, Alhaji Mohammed Saddiq, told newsmen Tuesday from Makka that the accused Ibrahim Ibrahim is a free man.

Governor Bello Mohammed earlier met with President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the matter who in turn, instructed the Minister of Justice to proceed.

The commissioner explained: “It is evident that Ibrahim required the services of advocates which Governor Bello Mohammed swiftly handled by employing a team of Lawyers for Ibrahim and constituted a delegation, including a lawyer representing the National Commission on Diaspora from the Federal Ministry of Justice, to Saudi Arabia to monitor the proceeding.”

The commissioner said any moment from now, Malam Ibrahim will be flown back to Nigeria to be reunited with his family.
