Workers of KELM Engineering Limited– a Kanda-based multi-national company in the national capital, Accra, near Nima–have expressed shock at the alleged involvement of their Business Development Manager in drug trafficking, Starr FM reports.
Alhaji Muhammed Alamid Dawood is alleged to have been the brain behind the latest cocaine haul involving a lady courier, Nayele Ametefeh, who was arrested on November 10, 2014 at London’s Heathrow Airport with a 12.5-kg cocaine consignment.
Dawood's arrest took place at Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport upon arrival from Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday November 30, 2014.
Ametefeh, who is currently in the custody of UK authorities, recently appeared before the Isleworth Crown Court in London, where she pleaded guilty and demanded an early sentence. The Court, however, deferred sentencing to January 5, 2015.
The Management of KELM Engineering Limited, which deals in mechanical and electrical installations, has decided to remain silent on the matter.
Kwesi Asare, who has visited KELM Engineering twice, reported on Tuesday that Management plans issuing a statement in the coming days.
Muhammed Dawood’s arrest brings to 13 the number of people picked up so far by the security agencies over the Nayele cocaine saga.
Three of those arrested have been charged with abetment of crime, exportation of narcotic drugs, contrary to sections 56 (c) and 1 (1) of the Narcotic Drugs (Control, Enforcement and Sanctions) Act, 1990 (PNDC law 236).
They include a deputy director at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Abiel Ashitey Armah, Ahmed Abubakar, Protocol Officer and Kissi Theophilus.
The others are Nana Akua Amponsah and Sadalia Sandra Nuhu, the women who had travelled with Ametefeh but believed to have abandoned their luggage and absconded from the Heathrow International Airport on realising that Ametefeh, alias Ruby Adu-Gyamfi, had been arrested by officials of Her Majesty's Border Agency.
The rest include Paa Kwesi Acquah, Sandra’s boyfriend; Mustapha Kilba, a cousin of Akua Amponsah, and Faisal Khadar, an American.
