A 33 year old woman named Gifty Addo has been arrested after attempting to smuggle substances suspected to be cannabis (wee) and tramadol to an inmate at the Kumasi Central Prison.
The suspect concealed the “wee” and Tramadol in a stew which she was sending to her lover Yaw Odoom who is serving a three-year jail term at the Kumasi Central Prison.
According to reports, in an attempt to elude wardens at the jail, she carefully concealed the illegal substance in the offals (animal intestines), which she used to prepare the stew.
However, her scheme was undone by a vigilant female prison officer, who was on duty on Wednesday, January 2, 2019, around 3 pm.
A source at the prison told the Daily Guide that Gifty arrived at the prisons to visit Odoom, her boyfriend around 3 pm on Wednesday.
Gifty, a native of Kofiase, in the Ashanti Region, was in possession of a transparent rubber vessel, containing tomato stew, which was to be delivered to Odoom.
A thorough search of the stew by the female prison officer found that it was laced with 13 mini parcels of dried leaves, believed to be cannabis and 10 blister packs of Tramadol 225mg in the stew.
A tear-eyed Gifty was arrested on the spot and referred to the Drug Law Enforcement Unit of the Ghana Police Service, in the Ashanti Region for further investigations and prosecution.
