Presidency Reacts to Execution of Chijioke Obioha by Singaporean Govt

The Presidency has described the imminent execution of Chijioke Obioha by Singaporean government for a drug related offence as gut-wrenching.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa in a statement said that the planned execution was heartbreaking despite repeated warnings to Nigerians to obey the laws of the land of their host countries.

She said nothing could be done since Singapore determined to enforce its laws as a deterrent to drug trafficking, which has reduced as a result of its stringent capital punishment.

"While we regret the death of the Nigerian, we once again appeal to Nigerians to avoid crimes like drug trafficking with most countries especially in Asia declaring zero tolerance for drug trafficking.", Dabiri-Erewa stated.

Chijoke Obioha was caught in Singapore trafficking in hard drugs on December 30, 2008 with his execution slated for Friday November 18.

He was arrested with more than 2.6 kilograms of cannabis, surpassing the statutory amount of 500 grams presumed as drug trafficking in Singapore on April 9, 2007
