Nigerian woman in court on drug charges

A Nigerian who allegedly hid two kilograms of whitish substances suspected to be cocaine in her artificial wig on Wednesday appeared before an Accra Fast Track High Court.

Adikad Adedoyim Owuolabi, unemployed, has been charged with possession of narcotic drugs and attempted exportations of narcotic drugs.

The court, presided over by Mr Justice Charles Quist, did not take her plea and remanded her to reappear on September 29.

Mr Richard Adazabra, a State Attorney, told the court that the accused person was travelling to London on board an Emirates flight on September 4, this year.

While the accused was going through boarding formalities, officials of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) suspected that she was carrying drugs hence subjected her to a body search.

The search led to the discovery of three parcels of whitish substances concealed in her artificial wig.

The prosecution said when a field test was conducted, substances weighing two kilogram were found on her.

When she was interrogated, she stated that the drugs were given to her by one Daniel of Madina to be given to one Alhaji Aliu, aka Yaw, for a fee of 2,500 Euros.

The prosecutor said the substance has been forwarded to the Ghana Standard Board for analytical examination.

Meanwhile a teacher, Matilda Antwi, has also been remanded by the same court for concealing two parcels of heroin in her special pants and another parcel in her wig.

She has been charged with attempted exportation of narcotic drugs and possessing narcotic drugs, the court did not take her plea and she will reappear on September 29.

The prosecution said on September 4, this year, Matilda was going to through boarding formalities to Washington when she was picked up for questioning by NACOB officials who suspected she was carrying drugs.

During a search, two parcels of heroin were found in her specially designed pants and another parcel in her wig.

Matilda disclosed that the drugs were given to her by one Edward and Nuro to be given to an unknown person in the US for a fee of 15,000 dollars.

The prosecution said Matilda, however, failed to lead NACOB officials to the said person who gave her the drugs.
