88 bags of narcotic drugs destroyed after 20yrs of storage

Large quantities of narcotic drugs kept in a Police storeroom in the past 20 years have been destroyed in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region.

The 88 bags of narcotic drugs were destroyed by burning at the Sunyani landfill site following a court order secured by the Divisional Police Command, the Ghana News Agency has reported.

The illegal drugs were confiscated during a swoop in the Sunyani municipality. No arrest was made because the drug dealers abandoned the products and escaped into the bush, the Police say.

The destruction exercise was under the joint supervision of the Divisional Commander DSP Franklin Kramo, and the Sunyani Municipal Environmental Health Officer, Mr. Owusu Kokor.
