Despite the much publicized execution of 8 drug smugglers (with half of them being Nigerians) in Indonesia, young Austin Chukwuna decided to go the same drug dealing route in Indonesia which ended badly.
The 25 year old Nigerian was smuggling drugs into Indonesia, and despite being discovered, he will not have to face execution as the drugs themselves did him in. The hard drugs he was smuggling out of Indonesia burst inside his stomach, causing his death.
According to Indonesian Police, Chukwuna had on Saturday May 30th lodged at a hotel close to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport Indonesia possibly with the intent of flying out with the drugs inside him, when he suddenly ran out of the hotel on Sunday morning, screaming. Witnesses saw him run to the hotel car park like a lunatic, broke the glass of one of the cars and used it to cut himself as he tried to get the drug out of his system.
“Austin Chukwuna, 25, ran out of the Ibis Hotel near the airport compound where he had just stayed a night. He allegedly tore open his abdomen with pieces of glass,” Benda Police chief Comr. Heddi Managsi said.
The police chief said when they searched inside his hotel room, they found three methamphetamine capsules and another eight meth capsules on the highway. “We then took him in the ambulance, but he died on the way to Tangerang General Hospital,” he said.
