Photo: 35-year-old Nigerian man jailed for life in Cambodia for drug trafficking

A Cambodian court on Tuesday, May 8, convicted a Nigerian and Romania of cross-border drug smuggling, and sentenced both of them to life in prison.

Romanian man Adrian-Calin Varadi, 40, was caught on Aug. 14, 2016 when he arrived at the Phnom Penh International Airport from Brazil with 4.96 kg of cocaine hidden in his luggage.


Nigerian man Chukwuemeka Ibe, 35, was arrested later that day when he waited at his hotel room to receive the drugs to take them to neighboring Thailand.

The duo are charged with "illegally transporting the drugs" under the country's Drug Law, said a verdict read by Phnom Penh Municipal Court's Presiding Judge Im Vannak.
"The court decides to sentence each of them to life in prison and to fine them 40 million riel (10,000 U.S. dollars) each," the verdict said.
During a trial last month, Varadi confessed to the crime, but Ibe denied the charge, claiming that he did not know the package he supposed to receive was carrying drug.
Under the Cambodian law, the convicts have one month to appeal against the ruling.

As a Yoruba, @ Bello Ajibola, you can't incriminate a whole tribe because of some few bad ones. If you are saying this, how will you feel if a foreigner says this about a Nigerian. Let us speak good for ourselves.

@Ajibola,it is admitted that when the crime involves drug trafficking, it is most likely to be an Ibo man, but when the crime is beheading of human beings for rituals, Yoruba carries the day, abi?

Why do some people like Bello Ajibola above, lack the ability to think straight and bring tribe into a very serious issue here. Now, are Bernard Ogedengbe, Batholomew Owoh and Lawal Ojulope, the three drug pushers ever executed in Nigeria, Ibos?
