Kenyan Busted In Accra With Cocaine-Heroine Mixture Valued At $90k

A 26-year old Kenyan woman who allegedly trafficked to Ghana three kilogrammes of narcotic substances with an estimated street value of 90,000 dollars has been arrested in Accra.

Ivy Mugure Daniel was arrested by officials of Ghana’s Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) at the Kotoka International Airport on January 9, 2018 when she landed with Ethiopian Airline flight ET 921.

A search conducted on her luggage revealed a big parcel wrapped with a black polyethylene material containing an off-white powdery substance, officials of NACOB said in a statement issued February 27.

“A test conducted by the Ghana Standards Authority on the substance proved positive to “speed ball”, a mixture of cocaine and heroin with an estimated street value of $ 90,000.00,” the statement said.

According to NACOB officials, Ivy admitted the offence and claimed ownership of the luggage but explained that “one Benson, her boyfriend in Kenya bought her the air ticket and gave her the travelling bag to pack her things and meet him in Ghana with the bag”.

She has subsequently been arraigned before court and placed in prison custody pending trial, the statement said.
