Zainab Aliyu, a 22-year-old student of the Maitama Sule University in Kano, had travelled alongside her mother and sister to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj.
According to Zianab, a group of men barged into the hotel room where they had lodge and took her way, stating that they discovered an illegal drug (tramadol) in one of her luggage which she had left behind.
This incident happened on December 26, 2018 and Zianab stayed in Saudi Arabian prison for 4 months (124 days to be precise).
Zianab told reporters then that she wasn't treated badly while in prison, it was almost as though she was not in prison and the only friend she made was from Ethiopia and that she knew little English so communication was hard.
Nigerian authorities fought hard to get Zianab back and save her from getting executed by pinning the blame on some crime syndicates which could have put that drug (tramadol) in her bag without her notice.
Zainab was released on May 13, 2019 and was welcomed by a huge gathering of family and friends and well wishers.
Zianab shared some lovely pictures of her passing out with her fellow corpers recently. She has served in the NYSC program.

You can leave a comment saying congratulations to Zianab.
She was lucky.
Based on her story another Nigerian woman was executed and this scared her.
Imagine being in her position.
Thank God for her life.
