The Minority in Parliament, through the Ranking Member for the Defence and Interior Committee in Parliament, has called for an independent inquiry into the disappearance of suspected cocaine seized at the Customs Post at Kpoglu in the Volta Region.
According to Mr James Agalga, The MP for Builsa North, an independent investigation will put to bed all the unclear circumstances surrounding the strange disappearance of the substance, suspected to be cocaine.
Mr Agalga cited a similar incidence in 2008 where the cocaine-turned-baking soda-saga was thoroughly investigated by the Kojo Armah Committee to find the circumstances that led to the swapping of the substance meant for evidence in a trial.
The honourable MP also mentioned the famous MV Benjamin case, where about 77 parcels of substances suspected to be cocaine disappeared onboard a vessel called M.V. Benjamin, and the subsequent institution of a committee led by former Chief Justice, Mrs Georgina Wood to unravel the matter.
The substance suspected to be cocaine, which was intercepted at the Kpoglu border disappeared on June 12. The weight is said to be about 100 grams according to the Narcotics Control Commission.
The two-state agencies which are supposed to look into the matter; the Narcotics Control Commission and the Customs Division have been in an embarrassing turf war with each accusing the other of negligence or incompetence.
