Man sentenced to two years imprisonment for smuggling Indian hemp

A man named Patrick Amadi has been jailed two years for smuggling Indian hemp into Kirikiri Prison, in Lagos.

On Friday, November 3rd, Amadi pleaded guilty to one-count of drug trafficking before the Federal High Court in Lagos, and begged the court to temper justice with mercy. Trial judge, Ayotunde Faji, sentenced the 24 year-old-man.

Justice Faji said the prison term should begin from the date of his arrest and admonished him to use the jail period to turn a new leaf and become a better person.
