The Dansoman Police have arrested and are investigating two young ladies for allegedly scheming to lure Mr. Lord Commey, the National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), into a cocaine deal.
The suspects, Sardia, 19 and Joan, 21, were arrested over the weekend and had admitted in their written statements to the Police that indeed they were plotting to drag Lord Commey into a cocaine deal and that they had been planning the operation after tracking him for some months now.
The two ladies were said to have booked an appointment with the NPP firebrand during which they proposed to do some "serious business" with him and that if he was interested, details of the business would remain between the two parties alone. Sardia and Joan, who is also called Judith, then told Mr. Commey that they had a cocaine deal which they wanted him to get involved in and that if he was interested, they would serve as agents or traffickers both in and outside the country. The mysterious girls allegedly maintained they were very serious about the business deal and would be disappointed if the NPP National Organizer let them down.
Mr. Commey, on hearing the mission of the girls, immediately reported the matter to the Police and the girls were arrested. The girls had allegedly given conflicting explanations on the reason behind the plot and why Mr. Commey was the target. They also claimed to have received his phone number from an unnamed source. ' The Dansoman Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Alex Yartey Tawiah, when contacted, confirmed the report and said his outfit was still investigating the alleged plot and that at this stage it would not be in the interest of the investigation to make public details of their findings.
He however said the two young women admitted that they had a cocaine business deal at hand of which they had planned to rope in Lord Commey, complainant in the case. The Police Commander requested that persons with information on the suspects should assistthe police with such information. The Daily Guide reports that the two ladies had called Mr. Commey and asked to meet him for an important discussion which they claimed could not be discussed on phone. After about a month of persistent phone calls from the girls, Mr. Commey finally decided to meet them but went in the company of other persons.
At the said meeting, neither Joan nor Sardia was able to identify Lord Commey from the persons at the meeting until he finally revealed his identity to them. In an interview with Daily Guide, Lord Commey said he was leaving the case in the hands of the police to investigate and that he had full confidence that it would be handled professionally. On whether he suspected a political plot, the NPP National Organizer said, "Nothing can be ruled out. "I am a politician and it could be anything but what 1 am saying is that let's leave it to the police to establish the motive of the girls and what this whole thing is all about," he added.
