Man arrested for giving girl ‘wee’ jollof

By on

black-man-arrestedA 20-year-old trader has appeared before the Accra Circuit Court for giving a young lady jollof mixed with marijuana (‘wee’).

Seidu Issah pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of narcotic drugs and was convicted by the court, presided over by Mr Aboagye Tandoh, on his own plea.

At the court hearing, counsel for Issah, Mr Andrew Vortia, pleaded with the court to be lenient with his client because he was a first time offender.

He also prayed the court to change his charge to use of narcotics and not possession because he used the drug in cooking the food.

The court, however, deferred his sentence to October 17, 2016 to enable the prosecution to check whether the drugs mixed with the food were indeed marijuana.

The facts of the case as presented by the Prosecutor, Deputy Superintendent of Police Mrs Patience Mario, were that Issah was a drug peddler, who resided at Achimota Abofu, a suburb of Accra.

Mrs Mario said on September 23, 2016, the wife of the complainant in the case found her younger sister deeply asleep.

“She wondered what might have happened to the sister and she was informed that Issah cooked jollof rice with Indian hemp and gave some to her sister to eat. The sister slept till the next day,” the prosecutor told the court.

DSP Mario said the complainant therefore reported the matter to the Police.

“He then led the police to the scene and Issah was arrested. A search conducted at Issah’s residence showed 58 wrappers and a half compressed parcel of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp,’’ she said.
