Ndulue NDLEAA suspected drug trafficker died at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja after cocaine capsules in his stomach burst.

The 32-year-old deceased male has been identified as Obiefuna Ndulue, Punch reports.

    Get out of this dangerous trade already. Its sickening taking this kind of risk!

      Not justifying evil deeds but most drug lords are not Igbos. Only small carriers are.
      I don’t know how they recruit these people, while they remain in the comfort of their homes.
      Enough already.

    Just “Negodu” life cut off at such a youthful age, just because we won’t do the right thing. This one sentence to life in prison in Indonesia, that one sentence to death in Malaysia but we have all decided to deafen our ears to all this. How about mercy, don’t we the life’s this drugs are destroying? This attitude of it won’t happen to me is not helping us.

    its time for ndigbo to hold a regional summit to find out the root cause of why their young men are mostly caught up in this crime.

    I was initially reluctant to post a comment but my conscience will not let me rest until I posted this. When I read this headline I wept inside me, and I felt really sorry for the guy even though what he did was so wrong but the way I looked at it is ‘what will make many fully grown adults swallow poison and risk this kind of senseless activity?’ The answer my people is in the fabric of our society. Gone are the days when people really did proper work to earn a decent living. Nowadays the leaders we have in Nigeria are mostly corrupt, there are not many good role models to look up to again unlike many years ago. The role models we have now are sophisticated thieves flaunting their wealth on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the likes. Everyone now wants to drive the super car, live in the super house, fly in the super plane or the best part of the plane ( and take pictures flaunting what food they had on their first class trip). Nobody is asking the question ‘ is your wealth derived from honesty and hard work? Everyone wants to post and flaunt their artificial lives on social media and those who don’t have the means are being scorned at and looked down on like they are failures! This is the end result of such actions, many will prefer to die in Indonesia or rot for life in jails all over the world instead of living or facing such scorn in their motherland. This is a time for real sober reflection for all Nigerians, where is the future of our children and youth headed with this present day money money money grabbing and flaunting attitude? May God help us all a word is enough for the wise!!
