Nigerian Man to face the death penalty for drug trafficing in Vietnam

A 45-year-old Nigerian man, identified as Ekwegbalu James Nzube has been sentenced to death on the 2nd of March by a court in the southern Tay Ninh Province, Vietnam for trafficking nearly four kilograms of methamphetamine from Cambodia.

According to him, in 2014 he became friends with another Nigerian man, Jone, in China who then hired him to transport drugs from Cambodia to Vietnam.

In March he came to Ho Chi Minh City before going to Cambodia to fetch the drugs for which he was paid $2,000.

But while illegally crossing the border into Vietnam last July he was caught by border guards in Tay Ninh Province. In his rucksack, they found four plastic bags with nearly four kg of meth.

Vietnam has some of the world’s toughest drug laws. Those convicted of possessing or smuggling more than 600 g of heroin or 2.5kg methamphetamine face the death penalty.
