THE COCAINE BUSINESS

Credits - Google.com
Ok, I get it. You need money and you don’t have a job or maybe your job just does not pay you well enough so you need an alternative source of income that can sustain your lifestyle or family expenses. So what do you do? You get into the drug business, its easy money right, the risks are high but the pay-off is immense. Enough to buy you a house in a highbrow neighbourhood and even throw in a Mercedes or Range Rover into the mix. For you, it’s time to be the new El-Chapo.


The NDLEA is the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency and is established by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency Act, CAP N30, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 2004. According to the agency, the Brazil-Nigeria route is very notorious for drug smuggling and many people have been arrested for trafficking.

However, the countless arrest do not deter you, having recently read Sean Penn’s interview of El-Chapo, you believe this lifestyle you have chosen is the best thing to happen to you. You have an army of area boys at your beck and call, people call you Chairman everywhere you go. Even club owners and popular music artists revere you and tell tales of having met you before. Life is good.

Until the sting operation becomes successful and you are sitting in a prison van headed to the Federal High Court.  Then the legal consequences of your actions dawn on you. Here is where you learn that by virtue of Section 11 of the NDLEA Act, you are about to get sentenced to life imprisonment, all the flashy cars and property are probably gone as well as the fake friends. It is at this point that you remember there is a God, you begin to pray and feel remorseful but it’s too late. 

The law in the aforementioned section of the NDLEA Act provides that:  
Any person who, without lawful authority – 
a. Imports, manufactures, produces, plants or grows the drugs popularly known as cocaine, LSD, heroine or any other similar drugs shall be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to be sentenced to imprisonment for life; or 

b. Exports, transports or otherwise traffics in the drugs popularly known as cocaine, LSD, heroine or any other similar drugs shall be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to be sentenced to imprisonment for life.

c. Sells, buys, exposes or offers for sale or otherwise deals in or with the drugs popularly known as cocaine, LSD, heroine or any other similar drugs shall be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to be sentenced to imprisonment for life; or 

d. Knowingly possesses o ruses the drugs popularly known as cocaine, LSD, heroine or any other similar drugs shall be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to be sentenced to imprisonment for a term not less than fifteen years but not exceeding twenty-five years.  

In conclusion, I will recommend that you do not participate in any of the activities mentioned above, I will hate for you to become a prison statistic.
