Octogenarian drug-dealer jailed for 10 years
A Kumasi Circuit Court presided over by Justice
D.W.P. Amedior has sentenced an octogenarian
drug-dealer to 10 years imprisonment.
Eighty-two year old Agambilla Akolbillah was
caught with 45 wraps of cannabis, weighing
2,436.32 grams at Achiase, a farming community
near Mpasaaso in the Ahafo-Ano South District.
He was charged with possessing narcotic drug
without lawful authority and pleaded guilty to the
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Regina
Addo-Yobo told the court that the convict was
arrested by the police on February 17, at about
2030hours, following a tip off.
The drug had been concealed in a black polythene
bag in his room.
The prosecution said Akolbillah admitted ownership
and promised to lead the police to his source of
supply but failed.
Samples sent to the police forensic laboratory for
examination proved to be cannabis.
