Nigerian Man and Wife, Get 25 Years Jail Term

Samuel Amechi Okeke, Nigerian, 34, and his wife, a Vietnamese, Ho Thi Nhu Thuy, 26, have each been sentenced to 25 years in jail after they were arrested in July 2014 for mailing ten backpacks lined with 1.5kg of heroin to Australia.

Meanwhile Ms. Thuy, during trial in February 2016, had pleaded guilty to mailing the 10 backpacks lined with heroin but said she did so at the request of a friend and was unaware they contained heroin while Okeke, denied knowledge of the drugs.

However, the court didn’t take his plea and subsequently sentenced him, firstly, to 25 years in prison and a fine of 50 million riel (about $12,500) while he gave the wife identical sentence.
