Indonesia Court Sentences Nigerian Man Uzoma Alpha to Life in Prison for Drug Posession

Just few months ago or there about 12 foreign nationals including 2 Indonesians were gunned down by firing squad. I dont know why anybody would want to commit that offence again. But well a Nigerian man named Uzoma Elele Alpha has been sentenced to life in prison by an Indonesia court. Alpha was given the sentence for “possession of methamphetamine and marijuana worth an estimated Rp 6 billion ($451,400).” Alpha was arrested at his apartment at the Margonda Residence tower in Depok last December during a raid by authorities from the immigration office. He failed to present valid papers for being in the country, prompting his arrest and subsequent drug testing, which came up positive for marijuana use. Police then searched his apartment where they found seven kilograms of meth and 300 grams of marijuana. Well guess he got lucky with the judgement tho.
