The British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin has denied reports that the Central Regional Chairman of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Allotey Jacobs has been arrested in the UK.
Reports of Allotey Jacobs busted at the Heathrow Airport on Sunday by the UK National Crime Agency on suspected money laundering and cocaine trafficking went viral on social media. The unconfirmed report also said Ghana’s High Commissioner to the UK, Victor Smith had dispatched officials of the High Commission to rescue the NDC chairman.
But Jon Benjamin in responding to the report on Twitter said “the story is not true.” “I can confirm that the rumour about Mr. Jacobs is definitely not true…Mr. Allotey Jacobs transited Heathrow this morning without incident,” he added.
