An Accra Circuit Court has acquitted and discharged all the six persons accused of aiding Nayale Ametefeh to traffic 12.5 kilogrammes of cocaine to the United Kingdom last year.

The judge discharged the accused for want of prosecution.

Alhaji Dawood has been in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) and was later granted bail for his involvement in the Nayele cocaine bust saga.

He is alleged to have assisted in Nayele Ametefeh’s easy passage through the Kotoka International Airport’s VIP lounge.

Miss Ametefe was arrested at Heathrow carrying 12.5 kilograms of cocaine.

Alhaji Dawood Mohammed told Morning Star, “Glory be to God and I have to thank Almighty Allah for this. I am happy and I thank my God,”.

The other freed suspects are two ladies Nana Akua Amponsah and Sadalia Nuhu, Foreign Ministry officer, Abiel Ashitey Armah, Theophilus Kissi a Foreign Service officer, and Ahmed Abubakar, a protocol officer at the VIP lounge.
