Ghanaian jailed 35 years for drug trafficking in Nigeria


A Ghanaian national Gyan Paul has been slapped with a 35-year jail term for unlawful exportation of banned substances.

In convicting the Ghanaian, Justice Obiozor held that the prosecution has successfully proved its case against the defendant beyond every reasonable doubt.

The judge, therefore, sentenced him to 35-jail term.

The judge further ordered that the convicted Ghanaian be deported back to Ghana after serving the jail terms and that his traveling passport be forfeited to the Ghanaian government.

The convicted Ghanaian was arrested with the banned substance concealed in tomato tin, packed in ‘Ghana Must Go’ bags, by the operatives of the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on February 25, 2018, at the departure hall of Murtala Muhammed International Airport.

He was said to have conspired with another Ghanaian residing in Ghana and another Nigerian resident.
