No fewer than 23 Nigerians are expected to be executed in Saudi Arabia over drug related offences.

The Saudi Arabian government, in a statement issued on Saturday, revealed that the suspects were apprehended between 2016 and 2017 at the two international airports in Jeddah and Madinah.

According to the statement, narcotic substances were found on them at their arrival, which is a death sentence for the offence in the country.

You will recall that a few months back Kudirat Afolabi and Saheed Sobade were executed for similar offences.

They were reportedly caught with 1,183 grams of cocaine in Jeddah.
