ALLOTEY JACOBS BUSTED BY UK NATIONAL CRIME AGENCY ON SUSPECTED MONEY LAUNDERING, COCAINE CHARGES

Allotey Jacobs, the Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and right-hand man of President John Mahama was busted early this morning in a dramatic arrest on a British Airways Flight at Heathrow Airport by armed officers of the National Crime Agency, the UK’s equivalent of the US’s FBI.

He joins the long list of Government officials busted for drug-related money laundering activities which includes the First Lady, Lordina Mahama by UK officials.

The severity of the offences was indicated in the manner of his arrest, which bore similarities with how the notorious Nayeli Ametepe (Rubygate) was arrested: NCA officials boarded the BA Flight No. 078 from Accra which arrived in Heathrow this morning and arrested him right there on the plane for carrying cash in excess of £500,000.

Allotey Jacobs was escorted off the plane, his wife in tow, under heavy security and is still being held by the NCA.

More details coming.
