Kofi Boakye Strikes In Kumasi; Wee Tanker Busted

THE POLICE in Kumasi have made a major breakthrough in the fight against narcotics in the Ashanti Region.

This followed the arrest of a water tanker, registered AS 4604-G, which was fully loaded with dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp, also known as ‘Wee.’

Most of the dried leaves were properly parcelled in rubber, with the remaining ones kept in huge sacks and stored in the water tanker.

Driver of the vehicle, Kwabena Alex, and his accomplice, Martin Gyamfi, have so far been caged by the police to assist in investigations.

Significantly, the quantity of wee in the water tanker had never been seen in the history of the Police administration in Kumasi before.

The illegal substance was being transported from Kwame Danso in the Brong Ahafo Region to Kumasi, the Ashanti regional capital.

DCOP Kofi Boakye, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, said the police patrol team, acting upon a tip-off, impounded the wee around 2:00am on Wednesday.

According to him, the manner in which the wee was concealed in the water tanker showed that criminals were always creating new ways to outwit the security agencies.

The police capo sternly cautioned Ghanaians against engaging in the narcotics trade, noting that the police were ever ready for them.

He stated the Ashanti Regional Police’s resolve to clear the Ashanti Region of miscreants.

DCOP Kofi Boakye, who is fondly called ‘Commander One’ by the residents of the Ashanti Region, said the police would not rest on its oars but would rather sustain efforts to make the Ashanti Region the most peaceful area in the country.

False Reports
Meanwhile, the police chief has described as false, media reports that a large quantity of cocaine had been impounded at the Tinker Island in Kumasi recently.

He explained that rather, the police impounded heroin weighing 72.3827 grams, 0.6896 grams of cocaine and 2.7262 grams of speedball, which is a mixture of cocaine and heroin.

DCOP Kofi Boakye said one Kofi Asamoah, regarded as the main supplier of illegal drug to Tinker Island, was also arrested during the operation which was made about six weeks ago.

The Regional Police Commander advised media practitioners in Kumasi to always cross-check their facts from the police before they publish stories to avoid unnecessary tension.
