SHAH ALAM, MALAYSIA: It was hardly a happy ending for a Nigerian movie director who was arrested with 2.4kg of methamphetamine when he was sentenced to 15 years in jail for drug possession.

Ifeanyi Johnpaul Aguonu, 38, was also slapped with 10 strokes of the cane for the offence he committed at the international arrival hall at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang at 10.45am on March 11, 2011.

High Court judge Justice Abdul Alim Abdullah on Thursday expressed his concern that so many Nigerians had entered the country with drugs without any fear for the law.

"Our country has a strict rule when it comes to drugs that the law provides a death penalty for drug trafficking.

"If you are convicted of a capital offence here you could have been hung from the neck until you die.

“But you've been saved from the gallows because your counsel sent a representation and the Attorney-General Chambers agreed to give you an alternative charge," said the judge prior to sentencing.

The court ordered for the jail time to run from the date of arrest.

While in prison, he can write an account of his early life up until the time he was caught with drugs. And after 15 years when he is release he can make his story into a film.
