The absence of witnesses for the state in the case involving the mother of the incarcerated narcotic drug offender, Nayele Ametefe has compelled an Accra High Court to adjourn the case. Nayele Ametefe’s mother is challenging the confiscation of one of her properties at East Legon in Accra, which the mother claims the said property belongs to her and not the daughter. However, the Accra High Court has adjourned the case due to the inability of the witnesses for the state to appear in court due to circumstances beyond their control. The confiscation of the property located at East Legon, became an issue for legal tussle despite a court ordering the Narcotics Control Board, (NACOB), to seize it when the mother of the cocaine trafficker resisted claiming it belong to her. An Accra High Court last Wednesday ordered the confiscation of properties of Nayele Ametefe also known as Ruby Adu-Gyamfi. Nayele, who is currently serving eight years, eight months jail sentence in the United Kingdom, was arrested on November 10, 2014, at the Heathrow Airport in the United Kingdom, by officers of the UK Border Force with 12.5 kg of cocaine worth $5million in her hand luggage. The 33-year-old, who pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom, was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London on January 2015. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Prosecutors said the cocaine carried by Nayele had a purity of 78%, and a street value of 1.872 million Pounds. The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested.
