Dec 14, 2011 at 10:26am

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at Washington-Dulles International Airport seized nearly 12 pounds of heroin, worth an estimated $375,000, and arrested a Ghanaian citizen, Sana Musah Suleimana on December 3.

According to court documents, CBP officers arrested Sana Musah Sulemana, 61, of Ghana, after officers discovered 5,315 grams, or a little more than 11 pounds, 11 ounces, of heroin concealed behind the lining of a suitcase.

The heroin was allegedly destined for New York.

CBP officers turned Sulemana over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents.

The U. S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia is prosecuting Sulemana.

Sulemana arrived from Ghana shortly after 6 a. m. , Dec. 3, and was referred to a secondary inspection.

CBP officers allegedly discovered that the lining of Sulemana’s suitcase appeared to have been tampered.

Court records state that CBP officers then discovered a wrapped package that contained a brown, powdery substance that field-tested positive for heroin.
CBP placed a detainer on Sulemana to be returned to CBP upon adjudication of his charges.

The charges and allegations contained in criminal complaints are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Veep orders IGP to hunt for 'missing' cocaine suspects
IGP Paul Quaye

The Vice President of Ghana, John Mahama, has directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Paul Tawiah Quaye to as a matter of urgency set up a team to thoroughly investigate how substances confirmed to be cocaine could have turned into sodium carbonate (commonly known as washing soda).

According to the Vice President, the country has done tremendously well in its fight against narcotics in the past few years and would not allow any person or group of persons to draw the country backward in this fight.

Mr. Mahama said, “this government has done a lot to redeem the image of the country as a narcotic transit point and we are not going to let anything roll that image back to what it was before and so there is going to be very thorough investigation of this matter and anybody found to be culpable must be very severely dealt with. ”

“Not only in terms of those who substituted whatever substance it was but anybody whose negligence led to that incident happening. IGP, you must launch an immediate investigation and deal very severely with anybody who is found to have been culpable,” he added.

The Vice President made these comments during a presentation of a number of vehicles to the Ghana Police Service on Wednesday to aid them in the execution of their duties especially during the Yuletide and beyond.

Meanwhile, the executive secretary of the Narcotic Control Board has called for the interdiction of junior police officers and their supervisors whose negligence may have resulted in the disappearance of cocaine exhibits being used to prosecute an alleged drug trafficker.

Mr. Akrasi Sarpong who is suspicious the initial cocaine substance may have been exchanged with the washing soda told Citi News that the officers who handled the case must be investigated and punished appropriately.

Wednesday, 14 December 2011 09:12

One person believed to be a Fulani herdsman has been killed in the latest attacks in Agogo in the Ashanti region. Police say two others were severely injured and have been hospitalized.

The incident which occurred at the weekend, comes barely a week after reports that the nomads were returning to the town three weeks after they were relocated. It also follows similar killing of 13 nomads in the Northern Region by men suspected to be Kokombas.

Kingsley Obeng spokesperson for the Agogo Residents Association told Joy News they are not happy with the return of the nomads in Agogo. He said they have alerted the security agencies of their return.

But head of police operations at Agogo DSP Obeng Dompra has allayed the fears of the residents. He confirmed the deceased was a Fulani but could not say who killed him. He said investigations have started but no suspect has yet been nabbed.

Helping the needy PDF Print E-mail

“They only asked us to remember the poor – the very thing I also was eager to do.” Galatians 2:10.
As members of the body of Messiah, we feel compelled to help those who are in need. Our main area of aid is to immigrant families, single mothers and refugees.
Through our assistance, families are able to pay rent, purchase groceries, send their children to school and receive medical care. We rejoice at the opportunity to serve those in our neighborhood and see God’s provision for his nation.
New Immigrants
Immigration to Israel is a step of courage and faith, it is a step that takes commitment, obedience and above all sacrifice. It is a great blessing to live out the dream of fulfilling God's promise that he would return his chosen people to their Promised Land. However, sometimes, this dream can become a hard and difficult reality that may seem financially impossible.
Our church is seeing an increase of calls to help the needy. By the grace of God we have not only been able to provide aid, but also bring the message of hope, faith and salvation in Jesus Christ.
For many immigrants finding a job proves difficult and many start at the bottom of the pay scale, which makes it almost impossible to provide the basic necessities of life.  Also finding a place to live where they must pay two to three months rent in advance plus a security deposit, can be burdensome. We have been able to help these families pay school fees for their children, purchase groceries for their families and in some cases pay their utilities.
Single Mothers
Single mothers have the double burden of raising a child (or children) and financially providing for the family alone. The Lord has blessed us to be able to help single mothers in providing for their children's needs. Sometimes the help comes in the form of paying their rent, groceries or diapers, sometimes paying school fees and on occasion providing a babysitter.
African Refugees
Over the past few years, Israel has seen a new exodus from Egypt, but this time it is not the people of Israel, but refugees from Sudan. These people have passed through unspeakable atrocities, genocide, mass murders and persecution that challenges our ability to comprehend.
Like many congregations in Israel, we have adopted a number of these dear people. They generally speak only an Arabic dialect and a tribal language, but are eager to learn Hebrew and English. We have been blessed to help in many ways through finding a home, providing Hebrew language tutoring and sending one young man on a scholarship to a Bible College in Nazareth.
Our ministry is a simple three-fold statement: to take the Gospel to the lost, to disciple the believers and to help the needy. Without the generosity of our members and friends around the world, we would not be able to continue helping the needy: immigrants, single mothers, or refugees. Thank you to those who have contributed to these projects. Continue to pray for those who are suffering, and pray for God’s provision through His people to continue this good and faithful work.
