Nayele Cocaine saga: Alhaji Dawood, 5 others freed

An Accra Circuit Court has acquitted and discharged all the six persons accused of aiding Nayele Ametefeh to traffic 12 kilogrammes of cocaine to the United Kingdom last year.

The judge, according to Starr News’ Wilberforce Asare, discharged the accused for want of prosecution.

“Glory be to God and I have to thank Almighty Allah for this. I am happy and I thank my God,” the principal suspect in the case Alhaji Dawood Mohammed, a businessman, told Morning Starr.

Asare reported on Tuesday that family members who were at the court are in a state of ecstasy after the prosecution told the court it can no longer proceed with the case.

The other freed suspects are two ladies Nana Akua Amponsah and Sadalia Nuhu, Foreign Ministry officer, Abiel Ashitey Armah, Theophilus Kissi a foreign service officer, and Ahmed Abubakr, a protocol officer at the VIP lounge.
