- A Nigerian has been arrested for peddling narcotics from Ghana to his country
- Michael Ede was caught with 209 parcels of "wee"
- He pleaded guilty and has been sentenced to 10 years behind bars
An Accra High Court has jailed a Nigerian who was caught transporting parcels of "wee" to his home country.
Michael Ede was caught in his way to Nigeria with 209 parcels of "wee" but it has been two years since he was made a remand prisoner. This was reversed during the Justice For All Programm (JFAP) sitting which happened at the Akuse Local Prison in the Eastern Region.
The court ruling orders that all 209 parcels of "wee" would have to be burnt in the presence of the Court’s Registrar, the District Police Commander in Somanya and the Police Investigator.
Meanwhile, Ede was however not pleased with the sentence meted out to him saying he thought he would be given a lesser punishment but the court explained to him that the sentence meted out to him was the minimum.
The trafficking of narcotics remains one of the huge security challenges in the country. As it stands now, Ghana remains of the entry points for drug peddling in Africa as traffickers mostly use the porous borders as points of entry.
