FG To The Rescue! Nigerian Government Hires Saudi Arabian Lawyers To Speed Up Zainab Habib’s Release

News of Zainab Habib’s arrest in Saudi Arabia after she was wrongly accused of peddling drugs took the internet by storm. With many Nigerians requesting for the Nigerian government to step in and help her. Reacting to these pleas, the Federal government has hired Saudi Arabian lawyers to help facilitate Zainab’s release. This was shared by Bashir Ahmad, the aide to the federal government, who revealed this via his official Twitter account. Zainab was arrested in December 2018 with Tramadol, a banned substance in her luggage. However, with the investigations carried out by the government, it has since been revealed that the drugs were planted in her luggage by a cartel specialised in doing just that. Photo Credit: Getty
