    As the saying goes in Yoruba language “danwo lo bi Iya Okere” that means danwo (try it or dare it) is Okere’s (squirrel)’s grandmother. How can anyone dare disrespect or willingly flaunt the laws of a no nonsense Islamic country? Nigerians are becoming daringly bold like Chinese people. On their visas to these countries are written in bold that “penalty for drugs trafficking is death”. Dare it and sing “Lord here I come”. Allah have mercy on their souls

    I am sure despite this revelation, if Saudi Arabia executes these people, you will still see Nigerians push drugs to Saudi. If they are executed whose fault is that, Saudi?

    These folks are daring the law of Saudi Kingdom just as they always dare Nigeria law. I don’t understand what part of NO they don’t understand. If you are a moron in Nigeria of today’s and you don’t understand that trafficking drugs into Saudi Arabia carries death penalty then you need to examine yourself.

    What actually happening with these people is that they think by violating another Country’s law, their government will plead on their behalf. Saudi Arabia is not like that. If they can behead their own citizens then who do you think you are?

    The worst part of this is that tomorrow, another Nigerian will be arrested for the same offense. Why blaming Saudi Arabia?.
