5 Ghanaians arrested in Dubai for smuggling weed; one jailed for 10 years

One Ghanaian who is part of five persons who were arrested at the Dubai International Airport for drug trafficking has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.

The Ghanaian Consulate General in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) disclosed in a press release Wednesday that between January and March this year, five Ghanaians have been arrested trying to traffic marijuana aka weed into Dubai.

In a press release Wednesday, the worried Consular said, “the sad part of it all is that, all the parcels containing the weed were given to them by the agents in Ghana who acquired the UAE visa for them, with instructions to them to give the parcels to their counterpart agents in the UAE on arrival. It is also interesting to know that the weed is normally hidden in food items.”

According to the Consular, the jailed person probably got into trouble for carrying weed he was not aware of and that someone else would have benefited from had he succeeded.


Consequently, the Consulate General is advising Ghanaians travelling to Dubai to alert their relatives and friends “never to take any message/parcel from agents or any other person to bring to Dubai except if they can inspect and ascertain the true content of the message/parcel.
