33-Year-Old Senegalese Woman Smuggled Drugs For Nigerian Lover

A 33-year-old Senegalese woman has informed narcotic investigators that she smuggled drugs for the love she had for her Nigerian boyfriend.

The suspect, Kamara Oumou, with Senegal international passport number 400680371, was found in possession of 680 grammes of narcotic that tested positive for heroin and cocaine.

She was apprehended by officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos while attempting to board an Arik flight to Dakar.

NDLEA airport commander, Mr Hamza Umar, explained that the suspect used industrial tape in sticking three parcels of cocaine weighing 515 grammes on her waist while six wraps of heroin weighing 165 grammes were inserted in her private parts.

In his words, “it was a carefully concealed method but not intelligent enough to escape our detection.”

However, unlike most drug couriers that smuggle drugs for money; Kamara Oumou shocked her investigators when she said that she smuggled the drugs for the love she had for her Nigerian boyfriend.

“How can I ask my boyfriend to pay me? I smuggled the drugs for the love I have for my Nigerian boyfriend,” Kamara stated.
She simply identified her boyfriend as Hakeem.

Preliminary investigation revealed that they both met in Dakar where Hakeem is believed to have lived for 11 years. Their relationship lasted only six months before Hakeem left Dakar in December 2012.

Hakeem invited Kamara to Lagos from Dakar and lodged her in a hotel where they both spent a week together. Within this period, he made necessary arrangement for Kamara to go back with the drugs.

In her statement, Kamara said that it was her first time of seeing drugs.

“I have a good relationship with Hakeem until my arrest. The day he brought the drugs to the hotel room was the first time I ever set eyes on drugs.

He called the drugs products; and that his business partners were unfaithful and he wanted me to take the products to Dakar because he had trust in me.

“Hakeem taught me how to pack the drugs and also took care of my travel arrangements. He said that he lived in the east but he took good care of me in the hotel in Lagos. We were to travel together to Dakar, but he suddenly changed the arrangement.

Hakeem travelled to Dakar a day before my trip,” Kamara stated.

Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA Ahmadu Giade advised members of the public to be careful of the tricks employed by drug trafficking syndicates.

“It is wrong to commit a criminal act. No reason is strong enough to engage in drug trafficking. Drug barons may claim to be in love with unsuspecting couriers.

They may even present themselves as philanthropists. I advise members of the public to be courageous enough to shun drug trafficking,” Giade urged.

The suspect, according to the NDLEA, will soon be charged to court.
