A Lady identified as Gifty Addo, 33, attempted to smuggle weed and tramadol in a stew for her boyfriend, who is jailed in Kumasi Central Prison, in Ghana.
The 33-year-old has been arrested, after she smuggled the illegal substances in the stew packaged in a transparent rubber bucket which at first was thought to be tomatoes stew and animal intestines, but however had 13 mini parcels of dried leaves suspected to be cannabis and 10 blister packs of Tramadol 225mg.
The suspect was exposed by a vigilant female prisons officer at the main entrance of the prison as she was being checked before entry. DSP Jeremiah Alale who confirmed the arrest in an interview with Kumasi further disclosed that the suspect’s jailed boyfriend, Yaw Odum, is currently serving a 3-year jail term for abduction and has allegedly been selling narcotic drugs to inmates of the prison for some time now.
According to Alale, the suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
