    He was caught by the police on March 8, 2020, illegally transporting 12 bags of narcotic substances and a little over a year later, the People’s Court of Western province of Tay Ninh sentenced him.

    Ugwu was said to have arrived in Cambodia in February 2020 as a soccer player and met a fellow African who promised to help him play for one of the famous clubs in the country.

    He was contacted to deliver a package from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) on the day he was caught according to VN Express and Instablog.

    Having accepted the deal that earned him $1,000, he was eventually bursted by police as he tried to traffic the drugs into Vietnam through less-travelled paths.

    However, the 23-year-old was said to have claimed he did not know the bag contained drugs while he was in court.
