The SOS which was accompanied by strongly worded petition, further explained that Daniel was so much loved and cherished by his mother and as such she could not withstand any news that her son was dead or has been executed by the Chinese authorities, adding that remained helpless as it was across international borders.
According to the petition,
“time is running out for Daniel, a bonafide son of Anambra state of Nigeria who is now facing death sentence in China over alleged passport forgery and drug trafficking offences”.
The SOS recalled that Daniel was by the Chinese security operatives in 2009 on allegation of drug-related offences and was recently sentenced to death in Guangzhou and is expected to be hanged any moment from now, except if any quick intervention could come from the presidency.
It was gathered that Daniel was arrested together with three Chinese women for the alleged offences as well as being an in China.
“I went to Haikou and checked all the files and found out that for three times, Asadu confessed that he instructed the girl to fetch the bags. And this time, he asked the girl to carry the two bags from four other persons now at large, said the lawyer, adding, I also copied the recordings of the messages between the girl and Asadu. I talked with the judge and he told me that the case will be decided on the evidence”.
The family protested that Daniel had been condemned to the Chinese government even as he was charged and tried in Chinese language, arguing that he does not understand Chinese language as to use it to defend himself.
