An Accra High Court has ordered the confiscation of properties of a convicted drug carrier, Nayele Ametefe who is currently serving an eight (8) year jail term in the United Kingdom.

The Ghanaian Times Newspaper reports that the targeted asserts of the convict include Night Angels Enterprise on the Dzorwulu Motoway, six different bank accounts of the Nayele with Fidelity Bank have already been confiscated.

Deputy Executive Secretary of the Narcotic Control Board in-charge of Enforcement and Control Richard Nii Lante Blankson told the Ghanaian Times Newspaper that NACOB is taking steps to serve Nayele with the Court ruling.

The 33 year old Ghanaian/Austrian who pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London in January 2015. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea.

Prosecutors said the cocaine carried by Nayele had a purity of 78% and a street value of 1.872 million Pounds. The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested.

The money was payment for her courier services.

According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America.

The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.
