Gaya commends Nigerians over solidarity for Release of Aliyu, Abubakar
The Nigerian Government secured the release of Zainab, a student of Maitama Sule University, Kano, who was arrested and had been in detention since December when tramadol was found in her bag on arrival in Saudi Arabia.
Her continued detention sparked widespread sympathy all over the country on the back of claims that she was innocent and only fell victim to a drug cartel at the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, Kano, that specialises in hiding hard drugs in travellers’ bags.
Gaya thanked the senate President, senate and all Nigerians for their support. Saudi Arabia also released Ibrahim Abubakar, the other Nigerian arrested alongside Zainab Aliyu to the Nigerian Consulate in Jeddah.
