Drug Trafficking: Nigerian Sentenced to Death in Pakistan
By Daniel Okeleke with Agency Repo
Pubdate: Thu, 08 May 2003
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A court in the city of Lahore, Pakistan yesterday sentenced a 44-year-old Nigerian woman, Osfatu Bose Oweiye, to death on charges of drug trafficking.

Oweiye, who was arrested in 1999, after officials from Pakistan's Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) found 20 kilogrammes of heroin on her in a Lahore hotel was also fined 400,000 rupees ($6,925).

ANF officials alleged that Oweiye was the head of a drug-trafficking syndicate and had been involved in high-profile smuggling cases elsewhere,having had drugs convictions in other countries

The Nigerian, who becomes the first woman to be sentenced to death over drug charges in Pakistan was arrested after police questioned five Nigerian men in connection with the discovery of the heroin in the Lahore hotel.

Police said the heroin was to be smuggled out of Pakistan before being sold in other countries.

On Tuesday, customs officials in western Pakistan said they had seized more than a tonne of heroin. They said it was the country's biggest-ever haul of the drug.

The raid came after a fierce gunfight following a tip-off in Balochistan province near the Afghan border. A number of suspected smugglers, however, escaped.

Customs officials said the 1,350 kilogrammes of heroin were worth more than $500 on the international market. Officials said the heroin was of the highest quality, and suspect it was smuggled from neighbouring Afghanistan.

The United Nations (UN) international narcotics control board said that opium cultivation in Afghanistan - used in heroin and other drugs - is now as widespread as in the 1990s.

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.

I went to st thomas and camped out ontop of the island... Despite my entire family being poor all my life, the land is priceless.
I was chased by haitians in the main city charlotte amalie when my girlfriend and I got some cocaine for free in a bar and mixed it with alcohol, to form a stronger drug. With such confidence at 2am, we walked the 4-5 or so miles down to the beach where the african slaves lie like lions waiting on tourist prey.


The war isen't on drugs... the war is on the causes that influence people to abuse drugs. drug-abuse is a by-product of the system and much like radioactive waste occurs from utilizing nuclear power, drug addicts with drug-problems will need to be properly disposed of, like the decaying radioactive waste produced from nuclear energy. -i2ancid
