Miss Aliyu, a student at Maitama Sule University in Kano, was seized by Saudi officials on December 26, 2018, for allegedly traveling with luggage containing illegal narcotics, including tramadol. Zainab had flown to the Lesser Hajj from Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport, MAKIA, with her mother, Maryam, and sister, Hajara.

Shortly after she arrived at Jeddah Airport, Saudi officials discovered a parcel containing prohibited narcotics and linked it to Zainab, who was arrested in her hotel room.
