A 53-years-old Ugandan has been arrested by officials of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) for trafficking 67 pellets of narcotics at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

The culprit Bwogo Federick was picked-up on April 25, 2018, upon arrival on board Ethiopian Air flight ET 921 from Kampala-Uganda when he was going through arrival formalities at the KIA.

In a release issued by NACOB, it stated that they suspected he had ingested narcotic drug when his urine when a sample tested proved positive.

Mr. Bwogo was later sent to the Headquarters of NACOB and placed on observation where within a period of 48 hours expelled sixty-seven (67) pellets. The pellets were field tested and proved positive for the narcotic drug.

When questioned, he told NACOB investigators that a Pakistani in Kampala-Uganda gave the drugs to him with name unknown to one Ahmed also a Pakistani in Ghana.

 

However, he told prosecutors in court that he was rather sent by a Ugandan national in Kampala-Uganda to deliver the drugs to one Ahmed, also a Ugandan national in Ghana for a fee of $1,500 without knowing the name of the sender.

He also said that his ticket to Ghana was purchased by the person who gave the narcotic drug to him, adding that the receiver of the delivery (Ahmed) was to pay his share after delivering the drug to him in Ghana.

The suspect has been arraigned before court and has been remanded into prison’s custody pending final verdict of the case.

NACOB’s release admonished the public to desist from delivering parcels for and on behalf of others, as it has been the conduit for trafficking narcotic drugs.
