Zainab Aliyu, the Nigerian student who was detained in Saudi Arabia for alleged drug trafficking, on Monday arrived in Nigeria.
Aliyu arrived Nigeria through the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano on Monday.
She was released to the Nigerian mission in Saudi Arabia after President Buhari directed Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, to immediately intervene in her case as she was wrongly accused.
Aliyu, a 22-year-old student of the Maitama Sule University in Kano, had travelled to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj alongside her mother and sister.
She was arrested at the Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz International Airport in Medina, Saudi Arabia, in December 2018 after tramadol, a banned drug was found in her bag. But it later emerged that the drug was not hers.
