Under interrogation, Tarmadji claimed she was contacted by a man who called her from Italy to collect the drug from a man who delivered the drug 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 said claimed the man brought 50 wraps of heroin for her to swallow but she couldn’t, so, she decided to insert 18 wraps into her private part and returned the remaining to the man that brought the drug to her.
Tarmadji said 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 COVID-19 pandemic came up.
