The suspects were arrested between 2016 and 2017 at King Abdul-Aziz International Airport, Jeddah, and Prince Muhammad Bin Abdu-Aziz International Airport, Madinah.

The ministry, in a statement on Tuesday by its spokesperson, Ferdinand Nwonye, said it was in contact with the Nigerian Mission in Saudi Arabia and urged Nigerians to disregard the “false” reports.
