The Accra High Court has ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to reinstate DSP Gifty Tehoda, who was dismissed in the cocaine turn baking soda saga in 2011.

According to the court presided over by Mrs Justice Ayisi Addo, DSP Tehoda's dismissal was in breach of natural justice and her right to fair trial.

The court also awarded GHc 10, 000 compensation for her dismissal and Ghc 5, 000 for her detention in BNI custody for 45 days.

The parcels of suspected cocaine later turned into baking soda under mysterious circumstances in court.

Gifty Tehoda was linked to the disappearance of the cocaine and was arrested, interdicted and dismissed shortly after.

She has since sued the Ghana Police Service for wrongful dismissal. She is also praying the court to among other things, compel the Service to reinstate her.
