A Chadian lady identified as Vivian Tamadji has been arrested by the operatives of The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) with cocaine concealed in her private part at the Abuja International Airport.

The woman was arrested while trying to board an Ethiopian flight bound for Addis Ababa to Italy carrying 234.5 grams of cocaine.

The lady said to be a hairdresser in Italy, was arrested in 2016 before returning to Libya during a search of passengers.

According to the suspect, an Italian man had given her 50 packs of cocaine to swallow but she showed him she could not, so she decided to put 18 locks in her vagina.

Tamadji also claimed that she came to Nigeria to earn money to rent a hairdressing salon because life in Italy was difficult.

She also said 10,000 euros would be paid if she got the cocaine shipment to Italy.

A statement released by the spokesperson of the agency, Femi Babafemi states that she was nabbed by vigilant narcotics agents during an outward clearance of the airline at the boarding gate after being scanned.

”Under interrogation, she claimed she was contacted by a man who called her from Italy to collect the drug from one man who delivered the illicit substance to her in a hotel she lodged in Lagos early in the morning before she took her flight to Abuja same day for onward journey to Italy.

She further claimed that the man brought 50 wraps of heroin for her to swallow but she couldn’t, and as such, she decided to insert 18 wraps into her private part and returned the remaining to the man that brought the drug to her in the hotel.

According to her, she came into Nigeria to raise money to pay for her house and shop rents which had expired in Italy, as life has been so difficult since the coming in of the COVID-19 pandemic. She said the owner of the drug was to pay her 10,000 Euro on the successful delivery of the drug to Italy.” the statement read
