The Police at Nkawie have apprehended a 64-year-old blind man at Wioso in the Atwima Nwabiagya District for possessing dried substances believed to be Indian hemp.

Kwabena Boateng, the accused person, reportedly had on him 17 pieces of dried leaves suspected to be ganja wrapped in cement papers, hidden in polythene bag and placed in a sack.

The blind man was, reportedly, traveling with the banned substances from Kejetia in Kumasi to Wioso on April 22, this year when he was arrested.

A policeman, who stays in the same neighbourhood with the suspect at Wioso and knows of the blind man’s narcotic business, was on the same vehicle in which the blind man was traveling on.

The policeman became suspicious of a mini sack the blind man was firmly holding so he (policeman) confronted him (blind man) about it in the vehicle.

The blind man, reportedly, admitted that the sack contained ganja and pleaded with the policeman not to arrest him but should visit him at his house at Wioso for a gift.

The policeman feigned interest but arrested the blind man when they reached Wioso and upon a search found 17 pieces of dried leaves suspected to be ganja, wrapped in a cement paper in the sack.

The blind man, according Chief Inspector Lawrence Hanson, a prosecutor at Nkawiie Circuit Court, confessed that someone at Mayanka, a suburb of Kumasi supplied the illegal items to him.

According to Chief Inspector Hanson, Nkawie Circuit Court, presided over by Michael Abbey, ordered the blind man to sign a bond of good behaviour for two years when he was arraigned.

Chief Inspector Hanson indicated that the blind man before being made to sign the bond, pleaded with the judge to consider his advanced age and condition and show him leniency.

The presiding judge accepted his apology and made him to sign a bond of good behaviour for the next two years; failure would see him going to jail.
