A 23-year-old Nigerian man, Theophilus Ugwu, was sentenced to death on Tuesday, May 25, for smuggling nearly six kilos of methamphetamine from Cambodia to Vietnam.
.
.
According to a local newspaper, Theophilus Ugwu was charged with “illegal trafficking of narcotic substances” by the People’s Court of Western province of Tay Ninh, Vietnam.
.
.
On March 8 2020, police found Ugwu transporting 12 bags containing meth from Cambodia to Vietnam in Tay Ninh’s Ben Cau District. The meth weighed around 5.92 kilograms.
.
Ugwu said he came from Nigeria to Cambodia in February last year as a soccer player. But in March, he became acquainted with another African, who promised to help him play for a famous Cambodian club.
.
.
On the day he was caught, the man hired Ugwu to deliver a bag containing the drugs from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC)— Tay Ninh borders both HCMC and Phnom Penh. Ugwu accepted the deal and got $1,000, but was eventually busted by police as he tried to smuggle the drugs into Vietnam through less-traveled paths. In court, Ugwu said he did not know the bag contained drugs.
