- The Hohoe Court has slapped additional criminal charge on the suspect for possessing drugs
An accused person, facing trial at the Hohoe Circuit Court on Wednesday got himself in more trouble after he appeared in court with substances suspected to be ‘Wee’.
According to Daily Guide report, the suspect, Kofi Amenyenu was arrested by the police last month for allegedly possessing a weapon.
However, the 32-year-old man did the unthinkable by appearing before the court on Wednesday with a substance suspected to be Indian hemp in his pocket.
Further report states that during the suspect’s first appearance in court, he started behaving strange, and this compelled the prosecutor, ASP Joseph Quainoo, to conduct a search on him.
After a thorough search on him at the court premises discovered wraps of substances believed to be Indian hemp.
The court has preferred a fresh charge of possessing substances suspected to be Indian hemp against Kofi Amenyenu.
Kofi, who is a farmer and resides at Gbi-Wegbe in the Hohoe Municipality of the Volta Region, was on June 11, 2018, arrested by the Hohoe Police for illegally possessing firearm, and later put before the Hohoe Circuit Court.
The accused according to police struggled with ASP Joseph Quainoo for about 10 minutes but police officers, who are also witnesses in the case, helped to overpower him.
After the search, the police found on him dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp in a black polythene bag, earpiece, Techno mobile phone, a box of matches and GH¢135 cash.
He was immediately sent to the Hohoe Police Office where a report was made.
According to the police, the accused person has been remanded in prison custody for further investigations.
The suspect is to re-appear in court on Monday, August 6, 2018.
