Remains of the late veteran Actor and former Ghana Actors’ Guild President Nii Odio Mensah cannot be flown to Ghana for burial if his family is not able to raise a total of $68,000.
The sad information was revealed by Movie producer, Socrate Safo who was one of the closest people to the late movie star.
According to Socrate Safo, the amount will cover the hospital bill, the undertaker and other things which need to be done before the body could be transported from China.
Speaking on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review, on Thursday, Socrate said Nii Odoi Mensah needed $26,000 for treatment but was unable to raise the said amount.
“It’s going to cost $68,000 to bring the body back to Ghana. The cost covers the hospital bills, undertaker and other things.”
The “Hot Fork” producer further stated that at the time Nii Odoi Mensah needed money for the hospital bills, hospital authorities in China decided to treat him with the hope that he will be able to settle the debt. However, the cost kept increasing.
“The treatment is such that you have to be confined so they regulate your diet and movement. They decided to treat him hoping the amount will be paid but the cost kept increasing so they resolved that he return to Ghana while they send him the drugs”.
Socrate used the opportunity to plead with entertainment industry stakeholders, philanthropists, corporate organizations and individuals to support the late Odio Mensah’s family to raise the needed amount to be able to fly his remains to Ghana for a befitting burial.
Nii Odoi Mensah died on Tuesday April, 12, 2016 while he was undergoing kidney treatment in China, after battling with the disease for some years.
Revealed: Why UK freed Nayele Ametefe after serving 3 years of her 8-year jail time
Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.
We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.
Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.
The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.
Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.
The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.
According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.
The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.
In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.
She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.
According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.
The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.
She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
