Nayele gang’s case adjourned to Jan. 21

An Accra Circuit Court has adjourned to January 21 the case involving the six accomplices who allegedly aided Nayele Ametefe to transport 12.5 kilogrammes of cocaine worth 3.5 million dollars to the United Kingdom.

The prosecutors prayed the court, presided over by Mr. Francis Obiri, to give them enough time to conduct further investigations into the case.

The accused on December 23, 2014, were each to be admitted to GH¢100,000 bail with three sureties justified.

They are Abiel Ashietey Armah, Assitant Director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration; Alhaji Dawood, Sadala Nuhu and Nana Akua Amponsah, Theophilus Kissi of the Research Department of the Foreign Ministry attached to the VIP Lounge and Abubakar Ahmed, a civil servant.

They were said to have facilitated the Nayele’s passage through the VIP Lounge of the Kotoka International Airport en route to the UK.

Alhaji Dawood is said to have facilitated Nayele’s access through the VVIP Lounge, while the two women have been accused of travelling with Nayele but absconded after her arrest at the Heathrow Airport.

Meanwhile, Nayele (aka) Ruby Adu Gyamfi, has been sentenced to eight years eight months imprisonment by the London Isleworth District Court.

Her sentence involves community service but would spend half of it in jail.

The forensic analysis of the cocaine showed a 79 per cent purity and street value of about 1.8 million pounds sterling.

The convict admitted in her first appearance via video link that she was guilty of the charge of importing narcotic into the UK.
