The suspects narrated that the owner of the narcotics parcelled the drugs in a sack and a  must go bag and directed them to give it to one John Mensah but according to her, they didn’t find out exactly what was in the bag.

Upon reaching the premises of the Ankaful prison, the prison officer decided to see what exactly was in the bag. They saw earthenware, eggs, pestle, wrapped food, and several other items but upon a closer search, they found the marijuana and cocaine hidden in the earthenware.

The Prisons officer quickly arrested them and detained them.

Upon interrogations, one of the suspects confirmed that the items were given to her by her husband.
