Nigerians Detained In Saudi Arabia Prison Over Expired Visa Cry Out (Video)

A video has surfaced online showing Nigerians in a Saudi Arabia prison crying for help and pleading with the Nigerian authorities to come to their aid.

In the video, the Nigerians said that according to Saudi Arabia laws, they should only be detained for about two weeks and then deported.

However, in their case, some have been there for about 6 and 7 months without trial and proper care.

The Nigerians said they are kept in poor conditions and have something that looks like bin bags as a duvet to keep them warm.

They said the room where they are placed is also overcrowded and they have to sleep close together, with bodies touching.

The Nigerians, however, called on the Nigerian government to help bring them home as other countries have taken their citizens home.
