MALAYSIA: NIGERIAN SENTENCED TO HANG FOR DRUGS SMUGGLING
December 28, 2015: The Malaysian high court sentenced a Nigerian citizen to death for drugs trafficking.
Ekene Collins Isaac, 37, was found guilty of smuggling 915.6g of methamphetamine, commonly known as ecstasy or MDMA, into Malaysia three years ago.
High court judge Datuk Wan Afrah Wan Ibrahim said the prosecution had proven Isaacâs guilt beyond doubt as she passed down the death sentence.
Isaac was caught with the drugs concealed inside his body at Serdang Hospital in Kajang, Malaysia, after he was detained by local police.
The condemned is believed to have swallowed the drugs in Nigeria, where he worked as a cleaner, before flying out to the south-east Asia country. (Sources: naij.com, 28/12/2015)
