A 33-years-old Senegalese woman, Kamara Oumou, has been arrested for

narcotic that tested positive for heroin and cocaine.

sticking three parcels of cocaine weighing 515 grammes on her waist,
while six wraps of heroin weighing 165 grammes were inserted in her
Ofoyeju stressed that the drugs were carefully concealed by the
suspect, but not intelligent done enough to escape detection by NDLEA
He, however, said unlike most drug couriers who smuggle drugs for
money, Oumou shocked her investigators when she confessed that she
smuggled the drugs because she loved her boyfriend.
The suspect was quoted as saying: “How can I ask my boyfriend to pay
me? I smuggled the drugs for the love I have for my Nigerian boyfriend.”
Ofoyeju said preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect and
her boyfriend, who she simply identified as Hakeem, met in Dakar where
the boyfriend had lived for 11 years.
Their relationship lasted only six months before Hakeem left Dakar in December 2012.
