Nigerian Footballer Jailed 2 Years For Trafficking Drug


A Nigerian footballer based in Brazil, Henry Umeh, will spend the next two years in prison after he was convicted for drug trafficking.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, had arrested Umeh on 6 October, 2014, at the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos, during the inward clearance of an Emirate Airline flight from Brazil, with about 15 grammes of cocaine recovered from him.

While delivering his judgement, the trial judge, Justice Mohammed Idris, educated the footballer on the negative effects of drugs, irrespective of its usage. He therefore sentenced the accused after he pleaded guilty to a one-count charge preferred against him by the drug busting agency.
