Yusif pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared before an Accra Circuit Court, presided over by Mr Francis Obiri, and was sentenced accordingly. 

Presenting the case as to the court the prosecution led by Assistant Commissioner of Police Atibilla said on the January 20, 2015, Sgt Ben Aidoo, a police officer stationed at the Alpha SWAT Unit in Accra, and his colleagues while on patrol duty had information that Yusif had in his possession a quantity of dry leaves suspected to be Indian hemp at a drinking spot.

Sgt Aidoo said the team proceeded to the drinking spot and saw Yusif sitting on a chair with a polythene bag lying on a table close to him. 

The prosecutor said a quantity of wrapped substances suspected to be narcotic drugs was found in the polythene. Sgt Aidoo said Yusif was arrested when he claimed ownership.
