The Narcotic Control Board (NACOB) has asked for time to file an affidavit in opposition to claims by Akua Adubofour, mother of Ruby Adu-Gyamfi aka Nayele Ametefe, in the case in which the woman is battling the state over two confiscated houses purportedly belonging to her daughter.

According to Ms. Mary Wendy Yeboah, lawyer for the anti-drug agency, NACOB needed time to respond to the claims of Adubofour who is laying claim to the supposed property of Nayele – a drug baroness currently serving eight years and eight months’ jail term in London for transporting 12.5kg of cocaine to Britain.

The Financial and Economic Crimes Court, presided over by Justice Georgina Mensah-Datsa, accordingly granted the request of NACOB and adjourned hearing until June 28, 2016 to enable it file the said affidavit in opposition.

The state had filed a motion on notice for the confiscation of the purported illegal properties of Nayele.

Ghana’s, Attorney General (AG’) and Minister for Justice, Marietta Brew Appiah-Opong, through Ms Penelope Ann Mammattha, a chief state attorney, filed a nolle prosequi motion to drop the charges against six other suspects who were before an Accra circuit court presided over by Justice Francis Obiri, for their alleged complicity in the drug case.

The motion, dated February 20, 2015 and signed by the AG, indicated, “Take notice that the state intends that the proceedings against the accused persons in the above-named case shall not continue.”

The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) and NACOB have so far confiscated all items in the Night Angels Enterprise, located on the Dzorwulu highway and six Fidelity Bank accounts including one containing GH¢3.22p, all belonging to Nayele Ametefe.

But Madam Adubofour is in court claiming that the two houses confiscated by the state as part of the assets do not belong to her daughter.

EOCO is also demanding that counsel for Madam Adubofour serves her daughter in prison with the processes that she has filed claiming ownership of the two properties.

However, Adubofour’s lawyer insists there is no need to serve Nayele with the processes since the houses belong to his client.
