The Bureau of National Investigations has indicated it is still carrying out investigations to ascertain the identities of the people who swapped cocaine exhibit stored at the police headquarters with baking Soda.

According to an investigator in the case, Chief Inspector Mahama who was testifying as a state witness in a related case where former police officer DSP Gifty Tehoda is at the Human Rights court seeking compensation for her unlawful dismissal, as well as an order against the Inspector General of Police to reinstate her with all benefits, the BNI have not been able to establish the identities of the perpetuators of the crime and still inquiring to be able to bring to book the criminals.

Gifty Tehoda was in 2012 alleged to have assisted Nana Ama Martins, a suspected cocaine dealer, to escape prosecution after a cocaine exhibit miraculously turned into backing soda.

She was arrested by the BNI after investigations by the security agencies to determine how 120 kilograms of cocaine turned into baking soda and put before an Accra Circuit Court presided over by Francis Obiri, on a charge of abetment of crime.

The case was however dismissed after the prosecution, led by Rexford Wiredu, asked the court to do so indicating DSP Tehoda was not involved in the disappearance of the cocaine.
