Uncontrollable joy engulfed the Four Men who were charged with the offence of allegedly sniffing a white powdered substance suspected to be cocaine, when they were discharged by a Circuit Court in Accra.
The Accused persons who had been standing trial for over four months were brought to court for trial of the case to continue but Prosecution informed the court that further investigations by the Police had revealed that the white powdered substance suspected to be cocaine was not found on any of the Accused persons as asserted earlier. Having listened to the Prosecution, the presiding judge, His Honour, Aboagye Tandoh discharged the Accused persons.
Earlier, Prosecution stated that the Accused persons, Joshua Pascal, Samuel Oko, Humphrey Afotey and Daniel were ‘seen sniffing a white powdered substance suspected to be cocaine by Policemen at Teshie in Accra, hence were charged with one count each (four counts) of ‘using Narcotic Drugs without lawful authority’, but the Accused persons denied the offence preferred against them by the Police when they appeared before court in November 2015.
The Accused persons who were excited by the ruling of the court expressed their profound gratitude to the Judge with a reasonable shout ‘thank you my Lord!’
