GOVERNOR MATAWALLE MOVES TO SAVE THE LIFE OF IBRAHIM
In his avowed determination to save the life of every Zamfaran, Governor Bello Muhammad is making his last move to save the life of Ibrahim Ibrahim, an indigene of Zamfara state, wrongly on the death row in Saudi Arabia.
Governor 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.
Ibrahim, an Islamic cleric, 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 execution judgement.
To this end, President Muhammadu Buhari has already directed the Minister of of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to handle the matter appropriately in order to save the innocent life of Ibrahim Ibrahim.
