A Nigerian man, Ibrahim Ibrahim has regained his freedom after three years in detention over alleged drug trafficking in Saudi Arabia.

Ibrahim, an indigene of Zamfara State, was locked up for 3 years on charges of entering Saudi Arabia with hard drugs punishable by death under the laws of that country.

on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, a delegation from the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) and the Zamfara state government was present in court at Jeddah to prove Ibrahim’s innocence during his trial.

The evidence presented by the delegation at two lower courts shows that Ibrahim was set up by some people who have been arrested and confessed to committing the act.

The court ruled in favour of Ibrahim and freed him from the drug trafficking charges, noting that he was wrongly accused.

the Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, welcomed the news and thanked the delegates sent to Saudi Arabia.
