A 20-year-old trader has appeared before the Accra Circuit Court for giving a young lady jollof mixed with marijuana (‘wee’).
Seidu Issah pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of narcotic drugs and was convicted by the court, presided over by Mr Aboagye Tandoh, on his own plea.
At the court hearing, counsel for Issah, Mr Andrew Vortia, pleaded with the court to be lenient with his client because he was a first time offender.
He also prayed the court to change his charge to use of narcotics and not possession because he used the drug in cooking the food.
The court, however, deferred his sentence to October 17, 2016 to enable the prosecution to check whether the drugs mixed with the food were indeed marijuana.
The facts of the case as presented by the Prosecutor, Deputy Superintendent of Police Mrs Patience Mario, were that Issah was a drug peddler, who resided at Achimota Abofu, a suburb of Accra.
Mrs Mario said on September 23, 2016, the wife of the complainant in the case found her younger sister deeply asleep.
“She wondered what might have happened to the sister and she was informed that Issah cooked jollof rice with Indian hemp and gave some to her sister to eat. The sister slept till the next day,” the prosecutor told the court.
DSP Mario said the complainant therefore reported the matter to the Police.
“He then led the police to the scene and Issah was arrested. A search conducted at Issah’s residence showed 58 wrappers and a half compressed parcel of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp,’’ she said.
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.
