According to the former NACOB head honcho who was speaking on UTV, NACOB had initially called for her in 2009, five years before her eventual arrest, but the woman went "underground". He said that the woman is highly intelligent, as one must be in order to plow the sort of trade she did.
But he also expressed that Ms Ametefe could not have been working alone, and that that network likely still existed to this day.
"I am not saying we should pursue her alone, it is a network she worked with and the network that sponsored her is still in Ghana.” Said Mr. Sarpong.
