has been sentenced to 12 years in prison by the Asamankese Circuit
Court.

Munkaila Musah, 35, pleaded guilty to possessing narcotic drug and was convicted according to his own plea.

Police
Chief Inspector Joseph Idan told the court presided over by Mr Kofi
Akrowiah that Deputy Superintendent of Police George Kingsley Adu, who
was in mufti, spotted a man on January 01 selling something he
suspected to be Indian hemp.

He approached Musah and offered to buy a wrapper and he readily sold it to him.

Mr
Adu arrested him and took him to the police station where the wrappers
were counted and were found to be 127 and weighed 3,729 grams.

Mr
Akrowiah commended Mr Adu and said at a time when drug trafficking was
on the increase and posed grave danger to the nation, it required all
Ghanaians to unite to fight the menace.
