29 January 2018 :
Two Nigerians have been executed in Saudi Arabia over allegation of drug-related offences.
Prison authorities in Saudi Arabia confirmed that about 15 more Nigerians are awaiting trial in the Middle East country.
The two recently killed were Ibrahim Ciroma and Maimidu Issah, who hail from Northern Nigeria.
The prison source added that while one was terminated on January 23, the other Nigerian faced the hangman’s noose on January 25.
The execution of the two Nigerians came nearly two weeks after a prison source in Medina leaked the names of 15 Nigerians, who are currently on death row at the Medina Prison, awaiting the long knife any moment from now.
