Nigerian who tried to import cocaine into Ireland loses appeal

Nigerian born Sunny Idah (41), with addresses at Lipton Court, in Dublin City Centre and Gerard House, Brown Street in London, had pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to soliciting another person to unlawfully import cocaine on dates between September 14 and 19, 2010.

He was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment with the final 12 months suspended by Judge Catherine Murphy on December 5, 2014.

Dismissing an appeal against the severity of his sentence today, Mr Justice Alan Mahon said Idah engaged two undercover gardaí posing as Polish drug mules to fly to Brazil and, once there, to eat or ingest one kilogram of cocaine pellets each worth a total of €140,000.
