Governor of Zamfara State, Matawalle, yesterday met with President Muhammadu Buhari and appealed on behalf of Ibrahim Ibrahim whose judgement was scheduled for next week, on charges of drug trafficking.
According to Director Media to the Governor Alhaji Zailani Bappa, the accused person Ibrahim, was wrongly arrested in Saudi Arabia and arraigned before the court but could not sufficiently prove his case due to lack of a lawyer.
He was earlier cleared by two lower courts in Jedda for lack of evidence on the part of the prosecution.
However, the prosecution appealed against him in Makka where he was expected to have a lawyer or risk being executed.
To this end, President Muhammadu Buhari has already directed the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to handle the matter appropriately in order to save the innocent life of Ibrahim Ibrahim.
