The Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) on Wednesday donated some items confiscated from a shop of jailed Ghanaian drug queen, Nayele Ametefe, to three rehabilitation centres in Ghana.
The NACOB made the donation in celebration of the 2017 World Drugs Day Celebration.
The beneficiaries are the Addictive Diseases Unit, Drug and Alcohol-Free Rehabilitation Centers and House of Saint Francis Rehabilitation centre.
Interacting with the media, deputy executive secretary of NACOB, Michael Addo said the donations were necessary and will help the inmates.
"On behalf of the Executive Secretary of the NACOB, I make this presentation...at least they can be used at the reception hall or waiting room..the inmates who are also being rehabilitated can relax on them," he said.
He added that: ”if you are arrested, you will not live to enjoy the proceeds of the crime that you have committed.”
Nayele Ametefe was arrested on November 10, 2014, at the Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom with 12.5 kg of cocaine worth $5million in her hand luggage.
The 33-year-old is currently serving an eight-year term in jail in the UK.
