Nigerian Student Sentenced To Death For Drug Trafficking in Malaysia

A 23 year-old Nigerian student of a private college in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was sentenced to death by hanging after he was found guilty of trafficking in 16,936gm of cannabis two years ago.
As reported by NewStraits Times, the Judicial Commissioner Mohd Zaki Abdul Wahab ruled that the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt against John Amaechi Eze.
In his judgment, Zaki said the accused claimed he was waiting to board an express bus at a restaurant in front of the Lye Huat Garden hall when he was arrested by police. However, he said the court did not believe his claim that he did not own the luggage when witnesses had testified that he was with the luggage all the time.

UK, Nigeria should unite on human trafficking – IPPR report

Steps should be taken to strengthen the United Kingdom-Nigeria war against trafficking, a 2013 report by the Institute of Public Policy Research has recommended. It suggested that one of the ways this could be achieved is by increasing the tariffs for trafficking in Nigeria. This, it said, would serve as a disincentive to traffickers and their cohorts. 
Titled, “Beyond borders, human trafficking from Nigeria to the UK,” the report also called on the Nigerian government agencies such as the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons, to formalise their working agreement with and support the anti-trafficking work done by many people in Nigeria.
