A 33-year-old woman has been arrested for attempting to smuggle narcotic substances suspected to be cannabis to an inmate at the Kumasi Central Prison.
The suspect identified as Gifty Addo cunningly concealed cannabis and Tramadol in a stew which was meant for her boyfriend Yaw Odoom who is serving a three-year jail term.
According to the reports by the Daily Guide, in an attempt to elude wardens at the jail, she carefully concealed the illegal substance in the offals (animal intestines), which she used to prepare the stew. However, her scheme was undone by a vigilant female prison officer, who was on duty on Wednesday, January 2, 2019, around 3 pm.
Reports indicated that a female prison officer, who was on duty on Wednesday, January 2, 2019, around 3pm, managed to identify the illegal substance.The reason for which Gifty tried to smuggle the substance to Odoom in prison is unknown.
Gifty, a native of Kofiase, in the Ashanti Region, was in possession of a transparent rubber vessel, containing tomato stew, which was to be delivered to Odoom.
A thorough search of the stew by the female prison officer found that it was laced with 13 mini parcels of dried leaves, believed to be cannabis and 10 blister packs of Tramadol 225mg in the stew.
A tear-eyed Gifty was arrested on the spot and referred to the Drug Law Enforcement Unit of the Ghana Police Service, in the Ashanti Region for further investigations and prosecution.
