A 35-year-old Nigerian man named Abuchi Ngwoke was sentenced to death yesterday by a Malaysian High Court for drug trafficking.

The accused was arrested in 2012 at a Malaysian airport after being caught with 251.66 grams of Methamphetamine according to Sahara Reporters. He had reportedly swallowed gemstones in Nigeria prior to getting on the flight to Malaysia.

The execution date is yet to be announced.

      “Lindsay Sandiford, a British grandmother sentenced to death for drug trafficking in Indonesia, now faces a firing squad after her final appeal was rejected by the country’s highest court.” This happened in August 2013 and the grandmother is white, they did not look at her skin and they did not look at her age or her grandchildren. This is not Europe or America where you will say it is racism, the drug laws in these asian countries show that they don’t play with drugs at all at all. This is not a question of black/white/yellow.

    These Idiots want quick money at the expense of other people’s life. He deserved the death penalty given to him. I congratulate the Malasian justice system for sending this killer to death before killing any of their Citizens with his medicine. Let that be a lesson to others. “A word is enough for the wise.”

    These people don’t read. Death penalty for drug trafficking is boldly written on your Malaysian visa. It’s his mother I’m feeling sorry for (if she’s alive).

    yes, there’s the Malaysian law on drug trafficking, but I still think it is too extreme, not just for this man, but for all others. Life imprisonment, yes, but death penalty? wao!
    I hope he gets to know God before the D-day. pity.

      Because the Malaysian government wants to spend money to ensure he’s alive during his life sentence, abi?
      I don’t necessarily agree with the death penalty but he knew the consequences of such actions and he decided he wanted it by doing the very action prohibited by law. Like someone said, I feel sorry for his family. Only God knows what pushed him to this.

    This is sad but this young man was well aware of the consequences of being caught. You can’t even ignore how boldly the death sentence is written on the visa. Even an innocent person would be scared.

    People who traffic drugs to countries with sentences like death penalty must be either really desperate or greedy+foolish to risk getting death sentences. Like- Malaysia loun loun! Those people don’t play with crimes like these!

    The death sentence in Malaysia appears not to be a deterrent. People still carry drugs there. I wonder why…

    Ganny must recognize that not every one is fortunate to have a good education which is like a solution to mankind’s problem. Na something bring one thing.. I don’t condemn the young man for his action, it’s better than robbery! Let God help him

      I agree with you completely that not everyone is fortunate to have good education because you don’t have good education is not a license for you/him or anyone for that matter to result to carrying drugs to a country which prohibits such behavior. The Malasian government clearly warned drug pushers and others like him on their visa the punishment of carrying drugs to their country is death. What part of that did he not understand? He broke their law, so he deserved to die period. (Remember this always, before warned is before harmed) Don’t give me any silly excuse about good education. How about learning a trade? Oh I remember, in Nigeria everybody wants to be a graduate, no one wants to be a carpenter, mechanic, electronics technician , electrician etc. That is part of the reasons why Nigeria is the way it is today. Full of unemployed graduates. Please, don’t get me wrong education is very important, so is learning a trade. At the end we all depend on each other for different services or the other. A doctor needing the services of a carpenter and vice versa. Another problem with young Nigerians today is everybody wants to get rich quick. that is why some has turned to carrying drugs without considering the consequences of such behavior, remember, “No sweets without swets” A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

    why the malaysian law would sentence a Nigerian or any other citizen or individual to death for drug traffiking is because they dont want to spend time taking care of this individual in prison like the Americans and some other countries do… they have no value for the human life
