Tomorrow Is D-Day For Nigerian Obioha Unless Something Is Done Fast!

Amnesty International, yesterday, called on Singapore to immediately halt Friday’s planned execution of Chijoke Stephen Obioha, a Nigerian national on death row for possession of drugs.



 Obioha’s family has been informed that his appeal for clemency has been rejected. 

He is set to be executed tomorrow. 

 Rafendi Djamin, Amnesty International’s Director for South-East Asia and the Pacific, said: “The Singapore government still has time to halt the execution of Chijoke Stephen Obioha. We are dismayed that clemency has not been granted in his case, but remain hopeful that they won’t carry out this cruel and irreversible punishment against a person sentenced to the mandatory death penalty for a crime that should not even be punished by death.


 “The death penalty is never the solution. It will not rid Singapore of drugs. By executing people for drug-related offences, which do not meet the threshold of most serious crimes, Singapore is violating international law. “Most of the world has turned its back on this ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment. It is about time that Singapore does the same, starting by restoring a moratorium on all executions as a first step towards abolition of this punishment.” 

Amnesty International opposes the death penalty in all circumstances, regardless of the method of execution or the crime for which it is imposed, and believes that there is no credible evidence that the death penalty has a unique deterrent effect. 

Background 


Obioha was found in possession of more than 2.6 kilogrammes of cannabis in April 2007, surpassing the amount of 500 grammes that triggers the automatic presumption of trafficking under Singapore law. Under Singaporean law, when there is a presumption of drug possession and trafficking, the burden of proof shifts from the prosecutor to the defendant.

 This violates the right to a fair trial by turning the presumption of innocence on its head. Drug-related offences do not meet the threshold of the “most serious crimes” to which the use of the death penalty must be restricted under international law. International law also prohibits the imposition of the death penalty as a mandatory punishment and Amnesty International opposes the use of the death penalty outright, regardless of the crime.

  3. it is boldly written in the country's airport and most public buildings where foreigners need to go to access documents like driving licences and residency , that drug trafficking will be met with death, WHY should a human being, with a functional brain, still go about involving himself in this trade, I cannot comprehend.

  22. But wait, everyone knows how they are strict regarding drug crimes and as the ghost that you is nao, you still carried drugs. When he was doing it, he didn't think about the consequences right? Let's not be emotional here, let's face the fact.
    I pray he is spared miraculously though.
    But he laid the bed he's about to lie on.....

  31. I am very impressed with our collective response to condemn his actions especially my brothers and sisters from 'z oza room(side)'. Please let us continue to collectively speak against our politicians who are continuously looting our treasury on a daily basis. We need to come together and put a stop to every menace of stealing that they want to use and spoil our destiny. Our generation is the most oppressed and we must all stand up together to correct it. God bless Nigeria.
