Five Nigerians arrested for Drug trafficking in India and Malaysia
The good old Bible says: ‘The wages of sin is Death!‘ and you better believe it, this isn’t an arcade or prehistorical law. It is for real in the Asian and Middle East countries, drug traffickers are beheaded! This is why I am always baffled when I read or hear about a Nigerians trafficking drugs in this day and age because of greed for worldly material things that will last only for awhile, they like to be eulogised, to drive fancy cars or build a 100 bed room Mansion, a bother or sister to the Ibori’s. Is it really worth dying for?
A 35-year-old Nigerian, Uche Sylvester, who used to traffic drugs between Mumbai and Delhi, was arrested in the capital and 100 grams of cocaine was recovered from him, the Times of India reported on Sunday.
Sylvester was arrested near the Delhi airport on Thursday while returning from Mumbai, police said on Friday.
