Nigerian footballer arrested for drug trafficking in Cambodia
A Nigerian footballer has been arrested in Cambodia for trafficking drugs.
It was gathered that Oderah was arraigned on Tuesday, June 7, after he had confessed to having acted as a delivery man, though he pleaded for leniency from the court since he was not a direct dealer himself. Oderah further said he knew the woman only over the phone, after another Nigerian friend introduced the two of them.
The Post reported that Oderah told the court:
"A woman called me to receive the drugs from a motodop and then to customers, promising to give me $50. When I got the drugs, I brought them to her customers near a petrol station in Choam Chao and the police arrested me.
I am sorry. I know I was wrong to break the law."
Drug trafficking in the East-Asian country carries a minimum sentence of 15 years to life. Oderah will know his fate in July when a sentencing hearing will be held.
