The mother of convicted drug courier Nayele Ametefe has been accused of assaulting a NACOB official who went to her residence to post a notice of confiscation on her property.
Officials of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) lodged the assault complaint at the Airport police station in Accra.
Airport Police Commander, Superintendent Yao Tettehgah told Joy News’ Evans Mensah the assault occurred when the NACOB official went to post seizure notices on the property believed to belong to Nayele.
Unhappy with the decision, and resisting the posting of the confiscation notice, Nayele’s mother attacked the NACOB official.
Nayele’s mother was angered by attempts to take photographs of the building.
Nayele Ametefe was convicted of transporting 12 kilograms of cocaine to the United Kingdom.
She was sentenced to eight years and eight months’ imprisonment.
Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London Tuesday afternoon. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea.
Luv FM’s Kwabena Ampratwum, who was in court, said Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down.
An aggressive family member of the convicted drug courier, Ampratwum said, attacked some members of the press outside the court after the sentence was pronounced.
