Ghana’s consulate in Dubai has announced the arrest of some five
Ghanaians in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for trafficking marijuana.
The consulate, in a statement released on April 21, 2021, said
the suspects were arrested between January and March 2021.
The consulate said in some cases, the accused persons had no
clue the drugs were in the packages given to them.
“The drugs were mostly hidden in food items and nicely packaged
to be delivered to other persons in Dubai on arrival.
