Cocain saga: Alhaji Dawood 5 others for court today

The court will today a hear a case in which Alhaji Dawood and five others have been accused of aiding Nayele Ametefeh to transport 12 kg of cocaine to the United Kingdom.

The accused persons, Alhaji Dawood, a businessman, Nana Akua Amponsah and Sadalia Sandra Nuhu and three other officials of the Kotoka International Airport, are facing prosecution charges in Ghana for the role they played in aiding Nayele Ametefe to transport 12kg cocaine into the UK.

The last time they appeared in court, lawyers for the accused persons argued that the facts as presented by the prosecution did not support the charges proffered against their clients.

They therefore asked the court to bail the accused persons, however the presided over by Justice Francis Obiri dismissed the bail application.

Alhaji Dawood, has been accused of facilitating Nayele’s access through the VVIP lounge at the Kotoka International Airport into the British Airways flight.

The two other ladies have been accused of travelling with Nayele but abandoned their luggage and managed to abscond after she was arrested at the Heathrow Airport.

Meanwhile, Nayele has pleaded guilty to charges proffered against her by a UK court. She is expected to reappear before the court on January 5, 2015 in the United Kingdom.
