Son of former Nigerian President, Yakubu Gowon Is Released After Spending 22 Years in U.S Prison (Photos)

Gowon Jack Musa, a k a Jack Spencer, was arrested on November 18, 1992, for conspiring to import in excess of 1kg of heroin into the USA. Detectives found, in his room, a Swiss Air Global Hotel Guide on which Musa had written a reference to "The Heroin Connection." .


They also found a television documentary on the recruitment of individuals in the Dallas area to smuggle heroin into the U.S. He had also written a phone number for Donald Iwegbu, an alleged co-conspirator who had admitted that the goal of the operation was to smuggle heroin into the U.S.

He was found guilty by a jury and was sentenced to 27 years in prison followed by 5 years of supervised release, but thanks to the new prison reform in the USA, he was among those granted pardon and released earlier this week.

Although, his father disowned him after being arrested, Musa, now 47, is said to be the product of the romance between Edith Ike Okongwu, who died while Musa was in prison, and former Nigerian president, Gen. Yakubu Gowon.
