Yaw Akrasi Sarpong ? NACOB Boss

The Executive Secretary of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB), Yaw Akrasi Sarpong, has accepted blame for lapses at the Kotoka International Airport that led to ?the biggest cannabis seizure? in three years in the United Kingdom last week.

The NACOB boss has served notice he may abdicate his post since his men failed and their actions have ?marred the image of NACOB.?

The drugs, which weighed around 1.5 tonnes and had a street value of ?4.3 million, were found in three separate freight containers filled with fresh fruit and vegetables from Ghana.

?It?s a big dent,? Mr. Akrasi Sarpong told Accra-based Joy FM on Monday. ?I take personal responsibility. Who said I am not thinking about it [resignation].?

?We?re going to strengthen things?? 

Border officers at Heathrow Airport last week made their biggest cannabis seizure in three years after containers arriving on a plane from Ghana were found with drugs worth ?4.3million.

The drugs, which weighed around 1.5 tonnes and had a street value of ?4.3 million, were found in three separate freight containers filled with fresh fruit and vegetables.

Border Force officials found the cannabis in tape-wrapped compressed packages within boxes on the flight from Accra on Monday.
                                 
Meanwhile, Citi News sources within the Police CID have indicated that the Police would be meeting with the officials of the Narcotics Control Board to find answers to the seizure of 1.5 tonnes of cannabis at Heathrow last week.  

Four officials of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) had been arrested by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) in connection with the cannabis.
