Despite Thailand and other Asian countries punishment drug traffickers with death, some stubborn  Nigerians still find pleasure in indulging in the deadly trade.

This came just as two Nigerian men, Joseph Uyamadu, 43, and 33-year-old Emmanuel Umiano, were arrested on Monday, September 7, by a joint force of narcotic suppression police and naval officers for allegedly producing cocaine in their apartment in the Ban Kai district of Rayong province.

The black sheets of substance are suspected to be chemical substance used in producing drugs, a narcotic police officer said, but added they have to be tested in the laboratory.
