A Nigerian Student in Malaysia named Mary George Unazi was sentenced to death on Thursday for drug trafficking.

Daily Independent reports that she committed the offense on May 10, 2011, when she was found with a bag containing  765.9gm of metamphetamine at the KL International Airport (KLIA).

Unazi, 30, who attends a private college, was found guilty of trafficking after the prosecution proved its case against her beyond reasonable doubt. She failed to prove that the bag was not hers.

She was subsequently charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 of Malaysia which carries a mandatory death penalty upon conviction.

      And if she’s from SS come and call her SS Nigerian or Biafran depending on what you decide. If she’s Yorba call her Yoruba Nigerian and so on. You people can’t all me claiming tribe only when it is good and then you dump the bad apples for Nigeria

    Nigerians please enough of all these already!

    Why do you take chances with drug in Asia and in other places for that matter?

    This is a lazy approach to success and should be stopped.

      That moment someone is trying to justify the reason why your gate man slept in your wife’s room till the next morning by telling you that ” what if he slept there because your wife was so scared at night to sleep alone”
