Nigerian Arrested in South Africa, Sentenced to 25 Years for Drug Trafficking



Another Nigerian drug trafficker, John Jekwe Chigbu, has been slammed with a 25 year jail term in a South African prison for dealing in drugs and racketeering.
The South Africa’s Durban High Court handed down the long sentence on Chigbu after he was found guilty of running a drug cartel inside the panel beating business he was a co-owns in the city.
According to the indictment on the Nigerian who is married to a South African woman, Chigbu would receive orders for cocaine and Ecstasy on his phone which he distributes using three couriers including his wife, Sithembile Sbongile Chigbu, another Nigerian, Sunny Augustine Seyi Osazuwa and a Burundian national, Ndayisaba Ramazani, who would deliver the drugs to customers who would then pay the money into Chigbu’s panel beating business bank account.
The four accused were arrested following a sting operation staged by the Organised Crime Unit of the SA police.
