Drama ensued when five individuals were detained and claimed ownership of a material believed to be “wee” that was discovered where they were detained. Four male suspects and a girl were detained in a bar that served alcohol. However, when authorities questioned the suspects, each one swore that they did not own the 13 dried leaves that were wrapped and stashed away in the bar.
The suspects—Kwadwo Azor, 49; Kwabena Amponsah, 34; Mushin Dauda, 23; Prince Osei Mensah, 25; and Elizabeth Agyemang, 32—are currently in police custody and cooperating with investigations. Elizabeth Agyemang is the only female suspect who has been caught.
The five suspects were reportedly arrested in a drinking bar at Yaw Nkrumah near Ejisu, in the Ashanti Region, on June 11, 2022, during a police swoop.
A police document said the swoop, which was organised from 9am to 1pm at some drug peddling ghettos, was to help clamp down on criminal activities. “In the course of the exercise, the suspects were arrested in a drinking bar at Yaw Nkrumah near Ejisu,” the police report disclosed.
“A search in the said drinking bar led to the discovery and retrieval of 13 wraps of dried leaves suspected to be narcotic drugs. None of the suspects arrested claimed ownership of the exhibit,” the police document sighted by the DAILY GUIDE pointed out. The report further indicated that the suspects have since been detained for questioning and profiling by police investigators.
