Arahamatu was granted bail to reappear on 27th October, 2017 while the daughter is also to reappear at later date before the Sunyani High Court.

Brong Ahafo Regional Crime Officer of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Nana Kwaku-Duah,told the Daily Guide that, a police patrol team at Berekum received information that Arahamatu Zulkallia was selling drugs in her house at Amangoasey, a suburb of the Berekum.

He said the police patrol team proceeded to the said house on 6th September, 2017. Upon seeing the police van, the woman tried to escape, but was given a hot chase and arrested.

Police conducted a search in the house and discovered dried leaves concealed in four ‘Ghana Must Go Bags’ and a mini fertilizer sack which apparently belong to Arahamatu.

After listening to the arguments of her lawyer when she appeared before the court the first time, the judge, Osei Kofi Amoako, granted the accused bail on ill health grounds to reappear on 27th October, 2017.

The dried leaves have therefore been sent to the Police Forensic Unit in Accra for examination.
