Why I Do Drug Trafficking – Okorafor
While agreeing to the crime, Okorafor, 45, explained his reason for the act by saying ‘I lived in Poland for many years working in a supermarket. Problem began when I lost my job and could not pay my bills. I relocated to Spain where I got the offer to smuggle the drug for 8,000 dollars. It was difficult for me to resist because I have wife and children.
This is my first time of smuggling drugs and I was nervous. I wanted to abandon the drugs for fear of arrest but everything worked against me‘.
The suspect hails from Ebonyi State and attended Mgbom Central School but stopped in primary 3.
Everyday is for thief, one day is for the owner.
