The family of the Filipina drug courier who was executed in China today is determined to seek the assistance of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in nabbing the Nigerian who recruited her as a drug mule.

In an exclusive report by John Consulta on “24 Oras” Wednesday, the family of the executed Filipina said they are planning to approach the NBI to make an artist’s sketch of the Nigerian recruiter who they only know by the name “Jarius.”

The family members said they still recall what Jarius looks like even though they last saw him in 2008, when he recruited the Filipina.

The Filipina’s family has left their home to grieve privately following the Department of Foreign Affairs’ announcement, also on Wednesday, that the Filipina has been executed. 

The father of the 35-year old Filipina said their family is especially protective of her 9-year old daughter, who is unaware that her mother is already dead.

The father said the Filipina’s daughter only knows her mother is working abroad.

The father added that the family is waiting for updates from the Filipina’s mother and younger sibling as to when her remains will be brought back to Manila.

Vice President Jejomar Binay on Tuesday told the media that the family wants the Filipina’s remains to be cremated immediately after the execution. — VC, GMA News
