A veteran journalist and Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr has alleged that Nayele Ametefeh, the lady at the center of the cocaine saga pleaded guilty in the UK court to protect her pay masters and accomplices. According to him, by pleading guilty that she entered the UK with cocaine weighing about 12 kilograms was a smart move meant to cover up her tracks.
Ruby Adu Gyamfi alias Nayele Ametefeh on Thursday pleaded guilty to the charges leveled against her when she appeared before the Crown Court in London via a video link.
“It is exceedingly interesting that the lady at the centre of this drug bust, Nayele Ametefeh has pleaded guilty to the charges preferred against her,” Pratt said.
He explained that “the effect of what she has done is that we will never get to know the full story in open court. From the point of view of protecting her accomplices, from the point of view of putting a shield around her operations and so on, this may appear to be some kind of a smart move.”
He however commended the security agencies in Ghana for investigating the issue when it emerged that Nayele had been arrested at the Heathrow Airport.
“Since this case broke out, it appears the security agencies are working overtime to make sure that any and everybody connected with this drug bust is dealt with according to law. As at yesterday, my information was that a minimum of 19 persons have been arrested,” he added.
Meanwhile, an Accra Circuit Court has remanded two persons alleged to have conspired with Nayele to transport the cocaine into the UK.
They are Sadala Nuhu and Nana Akua Amponsah, both businesswomen.
