GRUESOME!!! Nigerian Woman Gets Life Imprisonment in Tanzania (See Why)

According to the Citizen report, a Nigerian woman, with the name, Edigin Vivian have been sentenced to life imprisonment in Tanzania after being found guilty of trafficking drugs worth Sh289 million.

Justice Aishiel Sumari convicted Vivian of trafficking 797.56 grams of cocaine worth Sh39.8 million, through Kilimanjaro International Airport, KIA. Vivian said she carried the drugs because life had become too tough for her.

According to her, she had four children to look after. She, however, later said she would appeal against the sentence. The judge said the prosecution had proven beyond any reasonable doubt that the accused had 15 capsules filled with cocaine in her luggage, and had swallowed 48 others, which she later passed out.

Justice Sumari said the sentences should serve as a deterrent to others, stressing that drugs were a scourge that was destroying society.

What was she possibly thinking? Of all she could do to salvage her situation was to resort to drugs? Let this serve as a detriment to others as the law will take its full course on her
