NPP promises major revelations today – Cocaine saga
Minority New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Parliament is set to open a can of worms later today over the arrest of Nayele Ametefeh, aka Ruby Adu Gamfi, with 12 kilograms of cocaine at Heathrow Airport in London.
The Minority believe government officials are being economical with the truth behind the busted Ghanaian woman who travelled on an Austrian passport.
The press conference in the morning would disclose to Ghanaians some “major revelations” about the latest cocaine saga, Deputy Minority Leader, Dominic Nitiwul told Evans Mensah on Joy FM’s Top Story Tuesday.
Nitiwul stormed Parliament yesterday with two bags of rice weighing 12 kilograms to provide a teaser to what the NPP has in stock for today.
His action elicited shouts of cocaine, cocaine from both sides in a bid to score cheap political points. This degenerated into chaos, forcing the Speaker to suspend sitting temporarily.
The Parliamentary melee comes hours after the Foreign Affairs Minister, Hanna Tetteh disclosed fresh startling details about the arrest of the Ghanaian suspected trafficker who has been speaking to Ghanaian officials in the UK.
According to the minister, the lady in question said she does not know who gave her the contraband goods neither did she know that the content was cocaine. But Nitiwul has rejected the minister’s report and cautioned her to refrain from trying to deceive the public.
“I will dismiss it”, he asserted, and accused the minister of using her position to “defend the lady”.
She shouldn’t defend her because “this lady has embarrassed us big time”, he said.
It is not possible for someone to carry such huge cocaine without knowing about it, he stressed.
Nitiwul is convinced there was a clear “collusion” involving some high profile persons he would not name. Being able to use the VVIP lounge at the Kotoka International Airport reserved for top government officials is evident that a big man was involved, he stated.
An Assistant Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Abiel Ashitey Armah and two others, Theophilus Kissi of the Research Department attached to the VVIP Lounge at the Kotoka International Airport and one Abubakar Ahmed who were arrested by the Bureau of National Investigations for allegedly aiding Nayele Ametefeh were put before court today.
