Nigerian woman bags 6 years in jail for drug trafficking in Rwanda

A Nigerian woman identified as Priscilla Duru, was, last Thursday, sentenced to six years in prison for drug trafficking.

Duru was arrested at Kigali International Airport in October 2016 as she tried to smuggle 1.3 kilograms of heroin through Kigali en route to Nigeria.

According to Newtimes, during the hearings, she denied the charges arguing that she was given the bag by a Tanzanian woman and didn’t know the contents of the bag.

Reading the verdict, the presiding judge Alice Rulisa said that the court had established that Duru entered the country to wait for another person to give her the narcotics from Tanzania so that she could transport it to Nigeria.

Court ruled that she will have to serve six years in Muhanga Prison, and pay two million Rwandan francs in fines.
