Singapore To Execute Nigerian For Drug Trafficking

The family of Chijioke Obioha, a Nigerian national given the mandatory death sentence for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking on December 30, 2008, have been informed that November 18 is his new execution date.



Amnesty International in a statement Thursday recalled that on April 9, 2007, Obioha was found in possession of more than 2.6 kilograms of cannabis, surpassing the statutory amount of 500 grams that under Singapore law triggers the automatic presumption of trafficking.

Also in his possession were keys to a room containing additional prohibited substances, leading the authorities to presume him guilty of possession and knowledge of the drugs.

Obioha’s appeal against his conviction and sentence was rejected in August 2010, but maintaining his innocence of the crime, he initially refused to make use of his right to resentencing which amendments to Singapore’s mandatory’s death penalty laws made in 2013 allowed for.
“After the rejection of his clemency appeal in April 2015, his execution was set for May 15, 2015. It was stayed a day earlier to allow him apply for resentencing.

“His family were only informed on October 25, 2016 that he had resolved to withdraw his application for resentencing earlier in the year, following legal advice that he would not qualify as “courier” under the amended laws.
“Consequently, the Court of Appeal lifted the stay of execution with effect from October 24, resulting in the execution date to be set for November 18.

“Chijioke Stephen Obioha graduated in Industrial Chemistry from Benin University in Nigeria. He moved to Singapore in 2005, seeking to join a football club. His family members, who currently live in Nigeria and the United Kingdom, have been unable to travel to visit and have limited ability to assist him.

“Throughout the duration of the proceedings, they have received sporadic and often delayed updates, including when a legal representative was removed from the case,” Amnesty International stated.

Sad, Sad ,sad. I still wonder why they always trafficate drugs in countries that have Boldly Laid down their rules of Death penalty.
Is it that they enjoy taking such expensive risks? Or they think they can't be cut?
Or is the trill they love, I just don't get it.

Hope you are showed mercy at the last minute

What is it with igbos and drugs, I am not being tribalistic here. But this get " rich or die trying" mentality is so dominant there.
Can't the elders sit the youths down. Must you be rich by hook or crook.
If you must carry drugs. U.S. Is there UK is there. You will get just prison sentence and even go to school earn a degree while locked up.
Why all dese kind of countries.

Ideato, they should re-invest the " wealth" he left behind. You mean the blood money.
I pity the family that will take you in as wife, the way you reason I just wonder.
I pray when you marry ur identity in not linked to dis blog. Cos I just wonder.
Typical Igbo mentality, money money money. Even if it's thru hard drugs, fake pharmaceutical drugs, or money ritual. It's all money.

That is if he he made money before he was jailed

Nigerian Burger said...

Who made you "judge" over him that he would make heaven? Abi are you the custodian of heaven? Nonsense. Someone will do wrong instead of making them see their wrong you'll be pardoning them with heaven. Rubbish. Even our Lord Jesus said, it'll be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle and here you are making it sound simple.

D'Arc Ed said...

The reason is "money talks and bullshit takes a stroll"

...And...

Nobody gats love for a "BrokeAssBroda"

That's why.

It don't matter how the money came. The babes love it and the guys respect it. Society drools over it.

Just get rich or die trying. This one may likely go the second route anyway. But he tried.

It pays to work hard and positively for whatever you earn. There's peace of mind when God blesses it.

Adadioramma said...

Not again. I pray Singapore president will listen to his plea for clemency.

Iphie dearie said...

He still has a chance to give his life to Christ if he hasn't.
At least he knows when he will die.
The worst is unexpected, death... chai.
He can make heaven if he wants.

I wish a miracle will happen for him though.
This is heart breaking.. I hate knowing that anyone will be killed/leeched on.

He sold drugs that have killed several,made others homeless,useless and worthless addicts. The ripple effect of the drugs he carried is so much.
It is well!

Igbos think they are smarter than everybody else and they think they have liver and are untouchable. Well Asian countries are showing them that they are not smart and are killing them like the rats that they are when they get caught.

The interrogation by the officer was crude and unprofessional laced with vulgarity but the guy put himself in that position. Unfortunately he doesn't even look rich upon all the Mugu stuff. Nigerians who are drug dealers especially in countries like Singapore are playing Russian Roulette with their lives. I don't even know what to say. Tony Jamaica? Did he really attend UNIBEN? I doubt it. What a waste. Is his wife also a dealer or just being prosecuted based on the fact that she is his wife or also caught in the act? All round, this is a sad story of a guy who wanted to make fast money, swindled a number of people poisoned some and got caught and has to face the wrath of their crude law. Nigeria is to blame to an extent. Drugs are said to be readily available in Thailand and Singapore so much so, that after a while, the residents seem to forget that it's still illegal. Orobatoh was one lucky bitch. This one? Not so much. Nigerians, please stop this.

LADYGEE said...

We know that these Asian countries' law against drug trafficking is not lenient, yet, we keep peddling believing we won't be caught. Now, see how a youngman's life will be cut short. I hope others learn from this.
