Nigerian Drug Smuggler, Onyebuchi, Shot Dead By Indonesia Security Forces

An alleged notorious drug smuggler, Douglas Hope Onyebuchi, aka Kabaka, who was a suspect in a big drug smuggling case in Kelapa, North Jakarta, has been shot dead. He was said to have been killed after resisting arrest last Wednesday.

Jakarta police chief, Insp. Gen. M. Iriawan said Onyebuchi's Indonesian wife, Yani Andriani was arrested as she has been confirmed through their surveillance to be part of the cartel.


On why Onyebuchi was killed, he said, "During his arrest, he fought back and tried to grab one of the officers' guns. Therefore, we had no choice but to take him down."
