Nollywood Movie director Jailed 15-years In Malaysia


A Nigerian movie-maker, Ifeanyi Johnpaul Aguonu, has been sentenced to 15-years jail term in Malaysia for drug possession.

Aguonu, was arrested and caught with 2.4 kg of methamphetamines in his possession

According to source saying, the jailed filmmaker was also slapped with receiving 10 strokes of the cane for a crime he committed in March 2011.

High Court Justice Abdul Alim Abdullah expressed concern that many Nigerians had entered Malaysia with drugs without any fear of the law.

“Our country has a strict rule when it comes to drugs, that the law provides a death penalty for drug trafficking. If you are convicted of a capital offence here, you could have been hung from the neck until you die,” the judge said before sentencing Aguonu.

“But you’ve been saved from the gallows because your counsel sent a representation and the Attorney-General Chambers agreed to give you an alternative charge,” he said.
