CRIME : Jailed Exopa boss’assets to be seized and sold
|Ibrahim Sima|| |
The Narcotic Control Board (NACOB0, says it is in the process of confiscating the property of convicted fashion Icon, Ibrahim Sima.
The Board said the former CEO of EXOPA Modeling Agency’s belongings, when confiscated will be sold out to the public and not given to the State.
The Acting Executive Director of NACOB, Yaw Akrasi Sarpong who confirmed this to Citi News, said this move will help prevent some individuals linked to Mr Sima from sponsoring him while in prison.
He disclosed that there is a trend emerging where drug barons do not care going to prison because they have undisclosed wealth with which they get catered for while in incarceration.
“Everyday you have about hundred people who have worked with couriers, so they are not bothered because when they go to prison, the barons look after them and in the case of Ghana in particular where the legal space is common law jurisdiction, there are a lot of avenues for people to be defended".
“Starting from the Ibrahim Sima case, recently we published a list of all his assets that we know, if nobody claims ownership to those assets we will start a process of confiscating them and when we confiscate them we will not give them to the state but sell them out”.
Ibrahim Sima was jailed for 15 years for a narcotic offence in March 2011.
He is currently undergoing psycho-counselling at the prison’s diagnostic centre to help him settle in his new environment.
