At the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, a Chadian lady, identified as Vivien Tarmadji, has been arrested by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) with 234.35 grammes of heroin concealed in her private parts.

Tarmadji runs a saloon business in Italy since 2016 upon her relocation to the country via Libya, was nabbed by vigilant narcotics agents during an outward clearance of the airline at the boarding gate after being scanned.

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.

She said the owner of the drug was to pay her €10,000 for the successful delivery of the drug to Italy. Tarmadji was caught trying to board an Ethiopian airline flight 911 en route to Addis Ababa-Italy .
