Saudi Arabian authorities have revealed that at least 23 Nigerians are currently on the death row in Saudi Arabia for drug-related offences and may executed anytime from now.

Citing a document, the newspaper said the Nigerians were convicted for contravening the narcotic and psychotropic substances control law, which is punishable by death.

The names of the convicted persons were given as:

  • Adeniyi Adebayo Zikri
  • Tunde Ibrahim
  • Jimoh Idhola Lawal
  • Lolo Babatunde
  • Sulaiman Tunde
  • Idris Adewuumi Adepoju
  • Abdul Raimi Awela Ajibola
  • Yusuf Makeen Ajiboye
  • Adam Idris Abubakar
  • Saka Zakaria
  • Biola Lawal.
  • Isa Abubakar Adam
  • Ibrahim Chiroma
  • Hafis Amosu
  • Aliu Muhammad
  • Funmilayo Omoyemi Bishi
  • Mistura Yekini
  • Amina Ajoke Alobi
  • Kuburat Ibrahim
  • Alaja Olufunke Alalaoe Abdulqadir
  • Fawsat Balagun Alabi
  • Aisha Muhammad Amira
  • Adebayo Zakariya.

The Saudi Arabian governments recently executed a Nigerian woman, Kudirat Adeshola Afolabi, who was found guilty of drug trafficking.

The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Nigeria responded to widespread criticism of Afolabi’s execution by insisting that all legal and judicial procedures were observed.

“It is well-known for all those interested in travelling to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that the penalty for drug trafficking is the death sentence and the said sentence is applied on all persons convicted without any exceptions, as long as the evidence is established against them, and this is conveyed to every person prior to his trip to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” it said.
