Governor Obiano Recommends Death Sentence For Fake Drug Peddlers

The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Monday recommended death sentence for fake drug peddlers.

Obiano made the recommendation during the presentation ceremony of ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation certificate to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, South-East zonal Laboratory at Agulu, Anambra State by the United States Pharmacopeia Convention.

He described the activities of fake drug peddlers as evil.

“It’s the worst criminal act to humanity. Fake drug is the worst crime anybody can commit. There is no need jailing such people; they should be killed”, the governor stated.

The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Dr. Nkem Okeke, said the state was making efforts to partner the Federal Government to check the influx of fake drugs into the Onitsha Bridgehead market.

The governor said that to prevent the people of the state from falling prey to fake drug sellers, a health insurance scheme was being put in place to treat the people centrally.

*Death penalty for fake drug pushers?Hmmmm!!!...What do you think?


  1. Hmmm,death penalty dikwa too harsh

  2. I think is cool. They should also partake if what they are selling. Death for death. Since there's the probability of them getting freed and then going back to the same act. ..

  3. I agree!
    Fake drugs kill people everyday SDK!
    Fake baby food too!
    Fake diabetes drugs, fake HBP drugs, fake asthma drugs, fake TB drugs, fake baby drops/solution, fake analgesics etc.
    Like he said, it's worse than any crime. Because, it is an intentional act. They know it's fake, yet they have the mind to produce and market them.

    I 100% agree with him.

    FYI-My opinion.

    1. I agree with you too. Death should be the perfect punishment.

  4. Misplaced priority. Death sentence should be for rapist,men that abused their wives and children and kidnappers.

    1. Are you knowledgeable at all? Do you thousands of people fake drugs kill or has killed? Did you read the Article at all? You must be the opposite version of your name. You ain't intelligent at all cos if you are, you won't just type this nonsense

  5. Hmmmmmm! I dont really support this but prolly could serve as a deterrent to those that indulge or plan to indulge in such act because fake drugs can also kill.

  6. Stella,it's 'Obiano' not 'Obaino'

  7. I totally agree with Gov Obiano, this people are killing the poor and innocent people. Harsh discipline is the only thing that can change us nigerians.

  8. But when international bodies carry out death penalty on Nigerians we begin to run up and about petitioning them not to kill the culprit!!!!

    And also kidnappers deserve the same punishment. infact any crime committed with a gun deserves the same punishment. be rape o, arm robbery etc

  10. they should include kidnappers too!

    besides, these igbo people can carry drugs and kidnap for Africa, maybe they should kill all their men and start again!
    runs out of post

  11. Dog killers should also get the death penalty. #Tony ihekhere
