The Accra circuit has thrown out the case against ten officers of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) who were on trial for allegedly conniving with drug barons to ply their trade in the country.
They were arrested and hauled before the court in 2011 for allegedly abetting a drug suspect, Edward Macauley, to import narcotic drugs to America and other European countries.
The case which has been adjourned more the 26 times in the past was presided over by trial judge, Justice Francis Obiri, on Tuesday.
One Counsel for the accused persons, James Agala told XYZ NEWS the case was dismissed for want of prosecution on the part of the state.
The accused included Fatima Abdulai who, during her arrest and interrogation, revealed the alleged activities of her colleagues in aiding suspected drug barons to export and import narcotic drugs over the years.
The rest are Dennis Adutwum Gyimah, Yakubu Issaka, Timothy Aboloimpo, Peter Asong, Mutawakilu Yahaya Iddi, Jerry John Kwesi Abbiw, Eric Darko Akuffo and Nana Zamsah Evrah and Abubakari Nallah, popularly called Abu Sondoko, owner and bankroller of Tudu Mighty Jets Football Club.
