Nigerian Woman Gets Life Imprisonment For Drug Trafficking In Tanzania

A Nigerian woman, Edigin Vivian, was Thursday sentenced to life imprisonment in Tanzania after being found guilty of trafficking drugs worth Sh39.8 million (N3.6m in Naira).

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 has four children to look after.

She, however, later said she would appeal against the sentence.

An offence of this magnitude attracts a death sentence in Asia.
