Zainab returned to Nigeria in May after spending 4 months in detention being allegedly accused of trafficking drugs In Saudi Arabia.
The event happened when Zainab along with her mother and sister travelled to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj (Umrah)
Social media advocates and activists after understanding the wrong accusation of her had taken to social media and protested Zainab’s mistaken arrest while proving she never trafficked drugs to Saudi Arabia as alleged by Saudi Authority.
This action and other direct engagement with the presidency led to the federal government moving to quickly investigate the matter and get all evidence that confirmed Zainab’s innocence. Nigeria’s President took the matter up and finally, Saudi Arabia accepted the evidence and released her with another wrongly accused Nigerian Ibrahim Abubakar.
Congratulations Zainab for your successful passing out to serve Nigeria. We have no doubt you will be exemplary in discharging your duties.
