The convicts, 28-year-old Mustafa Azmir (pseudo) and 30-year-old Jude Nnamdi Achaonye were convicted on the 20th of December 2017 by a judge after several boxes containing Methamphetamine drug were delivered to their apartment by a courier.
13 prosecution witnesses and two defence witnesses were present during their trial on Wednesday.
Malaysian High Court Judge, Datuk Abdul Halim Anam after studying testimonies from the prosecution and defence witnesses who tendered 73 exhibits, ruled that the accused were drug traffickers.

In his ruling, Abdul Halim said:
Mustafa Azmir and the other convict, Jude Achaonye were childhood friends who attended the University of Jos together.
According to a social media source, Jude reportedly facilitated Amzir’s travel to Malaysia where they continued their friendship.
They are both from Umuahia in Abia state.
