From Jonas Ike, Abuja
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has dismissed recent reports in the media that 23 Nigerians convicted for drug offences in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have been executed.
The Ministry is in contact with the Nigerian Mission in Saudi Arabia and it has been confirmed that the story is false and should be disregarded.
The Ministry is investigating claims that most of the trials  were carried out without adequate legal representation for the accused, in accordance with internationally accepted legal principles. Furthermore the Nigerian Mission was not informed of the arrests and trials.
The Federal Government is therefore engaging the Saudi authorities through diplomatic channels with a view to finding a just solution.
