A 20 year old unemployed standing trial at a Kumasi Circuit Court for possessing Cannabis (Indian Hemp) caused drama at the court when he denied that the substance was not leaves but sticks.
The substance has already been sent to the Police Forensic Laboratory and had tested positive with the weight value of 17.47 grammes.
Ibrahim Mohammed, who pleaded not guilty to the charge, has been ordered by the court to be remanded into prison custody and to re-appear on Friday, June 14.
Chief Superintendent Moses Atibillah told the Court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Amo-Yartey, that one George Owusu, complainant in the case, on November 26, 2012, reported a robbery case against Ibrahim to the Asuofua Police in the Atwima-Nwabiagya District of Ashanti.
He was arrested three days later from his hide-out and handed over to the police.
A search on him uncovered the substance and was further handed to the Drug Enforcement Unit of the Ashanti Regional Police Command.
