Wee Exporters Grabbed at Kotoka International Airport

Two middle-aged men who allegedly attempted to export about ten cartons of dry leaves suspected to be Indian hemp (wee), through the cargo section of the Kotoka International Airport to the United Kingdom, have been apprehended by the Accra Regional police.

The two are Kwaku Boateng, a 47-year-old travel and tour agent and Yaw Opoku, 62, a driver.

The suspects, according to police reports, had wrapped the substance in dried plantain leaves which looked like Fante kenkey – a local diet, ready to be exported.

They are currently in police custody assisting in investigations.
