A few weeks after four Nigerians were executed for drug trafficking in Indonesia, a Nigerian student in Malaysia, named Mary George Unazi has been sentenced to death on Thursday May 14, 2015 for drug trafficking.
According to the Daily Independent, Unazi committed the offense on May 10, 2011, when she was found with a bag containing 765.9gm of metamphetamines at the KL International Airport (KLIA).
Unazi, 30, who attends a private college, was found guilty of trafficking after the prosecution proved its case against her beyond reasonable doubt. She failed to prove that the bag was not hers.
She was subsequently charged under Section 39B(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 of Malaysia which carries a mandatory death penalty upon conviction.
