Wrongful conviction of Ezejie Prosper Ifeanyichukwu, family cry out

Just received this email from a lawyer representing a Nigerian man named Ezejie Prosper Ifeanyi, who is facing death penalty in China for drug possession. His family say he's innocent and want Nigerians to get involved. Below is the mail from the family lawyer and a letter from his wife...
My names are Chike Anthony Ukoh. I am a lawyer in Enugu, Nigeria. I have been contacted by the family of one Ezejie Prosper Ifeanyichukwu, who is currently facing a death penalty in Guangzhou, China. He is married to a Chinese lady and they have two little kids. His wife is attesting strongly to her husband's innocence. Ezejie was arrested at the Gaungzhou Baiyun airport on March 12 2011 on his way back to Nigeria on the suspicion of possession of Heroin. Upon conducting a search, no drugs where found on him, but he was still tried, convicted and sentenced to death for possession of heroin. Continue...

He appealed his conviction, wherein the Guangdong Province Higher People's court unturned his conviction on the based that there was no evidence linking him to the crime, but curiously sent the case back to the same lower court for re-trial. The same lower court has now returned a guilty verdict based on the very same facts and evidence, the Appeal court has rejected as "unclear, and insufficient".

I am very mindful of the fact that there are very limited legal processes a Nigerian lawyer can initiate from here over a domestic judicial proceedings in China, to save a seemingly innocent man trapped in the intricate Chinese legal system. The only options left to be explored are social media campaigns and diplomatic pressure to call for a review of Ezejie wrongful conviction. 
I do pray that Mr Ezejie Prosper Ifeanyichukwu plight be considered by your media outlet. I will forward along the judgments, their English translations, pictures and mails from his wife. 



On the criminal complaint
Appellant: Ai Jizi Prospero Iraq Tiffany Chu library (EJEZE PROSPER IFAENYICHUKWU, hereinafter referred to as Prospero), male, born November 2, 1969, the Federal Republic of Nigeria citizenship, passport number: A1374656.
Appellant refused to accept the Guangzhou Intermediate People's Court (2012) Spike-France early word punishment of criminal judgments No. 62, now appeal.
Appeal Request:
Revoked the original judgment, to ascertain the facts, commuted the appellant guilty.
Facts and reasons:
All the evidence cited by the trial verdict, whether it is direct evidence, but also
Is indirect evidence that the appellant was not sufficiently involved in the planning Pross, the behavior of drug smuggling, drug smuggling trial verdict for the appellant to be convicted and sentenced to death, apparently belonging to the facts are unclear, insufficient evidence.
(A) directly on aspects of evidence: there is no direct evidence
Pu Shi Adams appellant participated in the drug smuggling, which I never made ​​the start to finish of any confession of guilt.
     Judging from the time the case occurred, March 12, 2011, the second co-defendant 吴佩莹 at Guangzhou Baiyun Airport was arrested by public security organs, and searched out the heroin in his luggage, the second defendant is the drug the direct perpetrators smuggling case; Prospero when the appellant was not at the scene, but in the same year on April 18, their preparation and their families returned to Nigeria, was arrested in Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, when appellant was arrested, regardless in his possession, or in their luggage, there is no contraband, but without any drugs.
(B) indirect aspects of evidence: can not form a complete chain of evidence, but no
France from many so-called "circumstantial evidence", the naturally presumed that the appellant participated in the drug smuggling, and the indirect evidence of the existence of loopholes, can not withstand scrutiny, does not meet the objective of common sense, we can not exclude a reasonable doubt. Briefly listed as following:
1, the second defendant confessed to their immigration records can not confirm each other, their
Confession was false.
Between the two, the second defendant's confession testimony to their mutual classmate 李敏捷
Contradiction, the contradiction between supply license, not consistent.
3, on the argument of the appellant threatened neither factual basis, also
Does not meet the objective reality of life common sense. Appellant as a foreigner in China, his visa has already expired, never reckless, reckless to such an extent! In contrast, if the threats and other acts, the second defendant in a better position and advantages for police assistance, the truth is self-evident!
4, according to the second defendant's confession, she knew her boyfriend was BC
(BUSSEY CHUKS), rather than the appellant's name.
5, on Kelly to stay in Zhuhai hotel's problem, although the hotel in
Sea passenger accommodation on the trip registration has written, "Prospero", the name is not the appellant's handwriting, the appellant's driver's license has been lost in 2009, so, in the absence of other evidence in the case of video surveillance, documents scanning mutual corroboration, the person is not identified appellant.
6, in Zhuhai City 2 unit rental Minehide 1712 housing problems, according to the room
The landlord's testimony, which does not distinguish whether the appellant lived here.
7, on two of the second defendant had mentioned March 2, 2011 in
Guangzhou R & F Peninsula Garden Hotel 9026 Tomijima next room planning process so that the second defendant to go to Vietnam, for the investigation of this problem, and did not follow the statutory procedures for the complete collection of relevant evidence, such as: open house registration, surveillance video to be evidence. Since the day of the incident from the time March 12 close, is perfectly placed to obtain the evidence. Defender in court also raised this issue, but did not get any response.
8, between phone calls and content issues, does not have a unique, 15015982281
Opening times this number can not be determined, and can not be confirmed as the appellant all.
9, on voice identification issue, the appellant in the court investigation, has
Clearly raised objections that the appraiser can not determine the identity, qualifications situation accreditation bodies, need to re-identification and other requirements, were not get any response and treatment in the trial and verdict.
In summary, the appellant that: based on the fact that the trial verdict is unclear, evidence
Insufficient, so the appeal, ask the people's court of second instance to ascertain the facts, make a fair ruling.
      Yours faithfully
Guangdong Province Higher People's Court.
                              Appellant:
                              December 2013 Day
Report: Two copies of the complaint on.

I'm a legal practitioner & i've read d judgment but it didn't make any sense to me.Also, before an accused can be convicted of drug trafficking,d drug must av been found in his possession, and it will be produced in court as an exhibit.

While the guy may be innocent of the charges preferred against him and later convicted,it is my personal view that Igbo elders in the South East should call their sons and review/adjust their value system as the craze to get rich by all means is so pervasive among Igbo youth.

I know a couple of young Igbo folks in Asia and south America and I can tell you that their stock-in-trade is mostly scam and drugs..

They are really tarnishing the image of this country and not allowing other law-abiding Nigerians in the diaspora to enjoy thier legitimate money and movement.

Its a sad commentary on how the south easterners value money irrespective of how it is gotten.

Mark you,I'm a South easterner.

The Chinese doesn't convict any innocent man! They have made it clear for everyone that they don't grant asylum to anyone, they want you to come to China, buy their goods and go back to your county, they have so many labourers and peasants who are Chinese. I'm sorry, but there must be some truths about his drug peddling accusation cos I've been to Guangzhou and I must confirm that 98% of Nigerians in that city are drug peddlers and Barons! @Linda, its time we stop crying foul over our own mistakes and the family should have asked him what he does for a living there!

This story is not straight.Before you folks start cursing anybody,please be sure!how possible is it that they search your bag,they don't find anything yet they name a particular drug and accuse of being in possession of it and convict you.there is something we are missing,Chinese are usually not bad people.the truth is that the Asian countries have made it plain and simple what the penalty is if found peddling drugs and they are darn serious about it,Now our country people will be peddling drugs because it's lucrative,now when they are caught they will start looking for Nigerians on the social media to help them,how much of the proceeds and profit did they give to charity or the less privileged? I don't believe nothing was seen on him and he is being convicted.if he is saying somebody planted it in his bags,it's a more believable lie to garner sympathy,not that nothing atall was seen,Haba!! The chinkos are not that racist or mean.

I feel this guy must have been set up. Agreed their are some Nigerians dat indulge in drug smuggling in guangzhou but most of them smuggle drugs to China & not the other way round. How can someone wants to take drugs like heroine fr China where is highly demanded to Nigeria.
In China now their are some Nigerians dat work with some bad chinese police officers that sale other Nigerians to the police & in case like this after arrest & detention when the police really found one is innocent they find it difficult to release the person bcos they wud say they dont want to lose their face & for someone dat has a Chinese wife they fear the wife wud really challenge them for illegally detaining her husband so in ds case they wudmake sure they try him & find him guilty @ all cost.
Basically my point is dat it is not possible someone wud want to exit heroine from guangzhou city to Nigeria wat for na? Someone close to prosper must have given the police a wrong impression about Prosper travel. I live in China & doubt if this Chinese wud listen to any plead from anybody but with God nothing is possible.

'Chinese daring Nigeria' you say? China is bigger than Nigeria n no bases to even compare economic political or military strength. All of these n then consider the things we have at the helms of affairs in naija.

I just pray that for once our govt rises to the occassion of defending this Nigerian for once in this life.
Nigerians are considered political orphans and so treated like homeless beggars.
God help u.
