ACCRA Circuit Court has remanded Kwasi Frimpong, a businessman, into police custody, for alleged possession of narcotics drug.
The accused, who pleaded not guilty, is expected to reappear in court on April 20, 2017.
Chief Superintendent of Police, Duuti Tuaruka, told the court that the Accra Central Police Command, made the arrest, after acting on an information that some group of men were dealing in illegal drugs at Tudu.
He said the police then proceeded to the area and later to Nima roundabout and arrested the accused person, who was holding a multi-coloured polythene bag.
“When the polythene was searched, it contained an oval powdery substance suspected to be cocaine,” he added.
The prosecutor said the accused person in his caution statement admitted that the polythene bag and its contents were given to him by one Evans.
Meanwhile, the exhibits had been sent to the CID headquarters to be forwarded to the crime laboratory for analytical examination and report. The police said strenuous efforts were being made to have the said Evans arrested to assist in investigations.
