Apparently, the Ghanaian lady-Nayele Ametefeh who was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport with 12kilos of cocaine has been on the wanted list of Ghana’s NACOB since 2009.

StarrFmOnline.Com reports that “a former NACOB Commander at Ghana’s Kotoka International Airport, Anthony Smith – who said he is very familiar with the lady involved in the trafficking saga – made the revelation on Joy FM’s newsfile programme Saturday in an interview with host Samson Lardy Anyenini.

Smith revealed that Ametefeh has several aliases which may have aided her to slip through the security net all this while until her arrest on November 9/10 by UK security authorities at Heathrow.”

The former NACOB Commander stated that, the drug trafficker-Nayele Ametefeh, alias Ruby Adu Gyamfi used the name ‘Ruby Appiah’, to traffic drugs years ago—which landed her on their wanted list.

And the question is; if this lady has been on NACOB’s wanted list since 2009—where has seen been hiding? She was roaming in Accra amongst some of the promiment Ghanaians and yet no from of NACOB could fish her out?

According to Anthony Smith, Nayele Ametefeh usually uses cleaners to beat the airport security to be able to transport her drugs onto flights and she “used that strategy to outwit security officials at the Airport in 2009 when she attempted smuggling about 5kgs of cocaine abroad with the help of a cleaner called Daniel Kabutey, who hid the narcotic substance in a trashcan, but was caught and jailed.”
