      What a silly and tribalistic thing to say- yes, more of Igbo names but are these people still not Nigerians??? Nigerian criminals all need to stop giving the country a bad name- stay at home and mind your own business rather than going overseas to dabble in drugs. Worst still is the news that there are 120 Nigerians on death row in China

      All of a sudden, we are one Nigeria? The same Igbo people that always cry about separating. Can igbos stop using tribalistic accusation to cover up their Shame and wrongdoing. igbo people, stop this denial and address the reality. The fact is, there are more Igbo names on the list of drug trafficking in Indonesia. If it was more Yorubas on the list, the same Igbos crying tribalistic will not let Yorubas rest by constantly opening their mouth to rub it in the face every chance they get. They even do it now based on nothing except oh, Yorubas looked at me funny or denied me renting. Yorubas don’t even do half of accusations, Igbos do. Maybe, if these people face the truth, something can be done to change the statistics. For example, U.S statistics shows certain ethnic group committing particular crime than the other. Whites are known for getting arrested more for murder than blacks. That doesn’t mean blacks don’t kill, it’s just that whites do it in a higher rate than blacks. Then blacks get arrested more for small robbery, etc Call it racism, tribalism doesn’t take away from the facts. There’s nothing absolutely nothing wrong with it. If anything, it should be a wakeup call for Igbos.

      My dear i think the real issue here is how our government should concentrate on reducing the level of poverty in the country and also strategize on how the wealth God blessed Nigeria with ( most of which comes from the SS and SE by the way) is distributed evenly.
      These people are not transporting drugs because it is fun, they’re desperate! lets look at the bigger picture and forget about tribalism.

    If you take the risk to do the crime, be prepared to do the time, even if the ultimate punishment is death as in Indonesia’s case. I do not agree with death penalty for drug traffickers but for goodness sake why take the risk of such an ignominious end – death by firing squad. No matter how bad you think your life is,a life of crime is never the answer. Gosh! I hate seeing these stories- I keep thinking how much different their lives would have turned out if they didn’t make such a fatally wrong decision… I watched the youtube video of one of the Nigerian men executed last week – Okwudili Onyataze – singing gospel during his time incarcerated. Left me feeling sad…

    I don’t understand how people will know a penalty of an offence in a country and still go ahead to commit the offence. Nigerian Government is bad, yes but it is not an excuse for people to go up to the level of carrying drugs…… Other people are still struggling with genuine jobs and businesses to make survive here. Even if the government does 100% of what is expected of them, greedy people will ati be looking for means to make quicker money. If you do the crime, do the time. Period.

    Am totally against illicit drugs but The truth is that the real drug pins are not the ones facing firing squad. They are in their air conditioned homes enjoying chilled champagne.
    The little fellows are the ones with the scarlet letters hung on their neck.

    So, so sad.
