19-Year-Old Student Granted GHS 30,000 Bail For Possessing Narcotic Drug

Handcuffed Prisoner

The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Court has granted bail in the sum of GH¢30,000.00 to a 19-year-old student for allegedly possessing two rolls of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp.

Abdul-Rahman Yakubu, pleaded guilty to possession of narcotic drugs but the Court decided that the substance had not been tested so the judge granted him bail to reappear in court on March 31, within which due forensic tests would have been completed.

Police Inspector Michael Koole, the prosecutor, told the court presided over by Mr. Abdul-Razak Musah, that the suspect was arrested on February 24 at Afrancho near Akomadan in the Ashanti Region.

He said the complainant, Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a fetish priest owns a piece of land at Afrancho which had been turned into a smoking hub by narcotic users.

The Prosecutor said the fetish priest went to the said location and met the suspect and questioned him of his mission on his property but the accused could not give him any tangible reason.

He said the fetish priest then caused his arrest with the help of other witnesses and when they conducted a search in a bag he was carrying, two wrappers of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp were found.
