A Ghanaian police patrol team has rejected a whopping GhC16,000 bribe from a driver carting suspected Indian hemp, the Service stated.

The patrol team spotted the occupants of a KIA Rhino truck with registration number GS 5491-13 on the Accra-Tema Motorway stretch Friday with “more than three sack-full of substances” believed to be the banned drug.

“The Patrol Team on its operation dubbed “Operation Intensive Stop and Search” found the three sacks together with 113 parcels mixed together with bagged okro. Upon interrogation, the driver insisted that the sacks were loaded with okro to be delivered in Accra.

“However, when the driver was told that he’s being arrested for carrying banned substance, he and owner of the substance offered the Patrol Team with an amount GHC16,460 as bribe but the Team refused the bribe and arrested the two,” the Ghana Police Service posted on its official Facebook page.

Five other persons have also been arrested in connection with the substance found in the vehicle.
