“Cocaine trafficking isn’t really bad. Infant (in fact) u can compare a cocaine trafficker to an unregistered chemist or pharmacy. They all sell drugs and if you take any drug in excess; It would have serious efforts in the consumer.”
“Death is death, it doesn’t matter how one died, he is a business man, it’s unfortunate that he has to go this way, but that’s life, is either you win or you lose, may his soul rest in peace.”
“He was a business man. That’s all. And May his soul rest in peace!!!”
“I hear u! Judge not ! Remove the log in ur eyez first so dt u will see clearly to remove the speck in anoda person’s eyez” ???
“Look life is all about risk. He gambled and he lost. So that’s it. Anyway many of us are like crabs. We don’t let the next man prosper. We try to stop him even with our words…” ~ Nigerians Commentators.
I stumbled across the above comments defending the lavish burial ceremony for the Nigerian drug trafficker, Izuchukwu Ezimoha, executed in Indonesia. There were a cross selection of opinions, with peeps for or against.
I’m here just laughing. The comments about the Nigerian drug trafficker and even his ‘glamorous’ funeral is nothing new. Mafia lords and Colombian drug barons have lavish burials and so do their crew. This trafficker’s family can bury him however they choose, and label him whatever heroic names they like. He is their son and it is their grief. It is not for me to castigate them for not condemning his wrongdoing.
HOWEVER, when other members of society begin to laud cocaine trafficking or call traffickers/dealers – business men – ‘Houston, we have a problem’! We are raising a generation of Nigerians so blinded by greed and a burning desire to ‘make money or die trying’, that our values have become warped. A Nigerian drug trafficker is a “businessman”?
We need the National Orientation Agency to begin addressing this immediately. Jingles and adverts decrying drug criminals. Visits to schools to teach children about the dangers of drug use and drug trafficking. Posters showing the reality of those executed abroad or languishing in jails for drug trafficking related crimes.
Our lack of values and lack of any moral compass has been shaped by decades of corrupt leaders, evil politicians, and a get rich by any means culture. It is time we fight back to protect the nation’s future.
** Tribalists are asked to jump and pass this post. If you want to use this article as an excuse to insult a tribe, then that is extremely silly and you have missed the point. The drug dealer was a Nigerian and was executed as a Nigerian. The shame is to ALL Nigerians. Drug dealers/traffickers/barons come from every tribe/gender/religion.
