Cocaine saga: Mahama dissolves NACOB Governing Board

President John Dramani Mahama Black

President John Dramani Mahama has dissolved the Governing Board of the Narcotics Control Board.

A statement from the Flagstaff House said: “Further actions, according to the Chief of Staff, Prosper Bani, will follow in due course.”

The dissolution of the Governing Board of the State anti-narcotics agency follows the recent arrest at Heathrow Airport, of a Ghanaian Lady, by UK authorities for trafficking 12.5kgs of cocaine to London.

Nayele Ametefeh is currently being held by UK authorities.

NACOB issued a statement, following her arrest, to say it collaborated with the UK authorities in the arrest.

However, the UK High Commission in Ghana issued a statement denying any such collaboration.

It said UK authorities had no knowledge the suspect was travelling to their country.
