The police officer who is said to be working with the Form Police Unit (FPU) at Tesano was exposed carrying the substance in his car after the accident.
He is said to have crashed on a section of the road on the Kpeve Mountain and had a fracture on his left hand which caused him to bleed profusely.
He was rushed to the Peki Government Hospital where he is receiving treatment but has been placed under police guard.
After a search was conducted on his vehicle, the Police allegedly retrieved 84 parcels of compressed dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp.
The parcels of the suspected cannabis wrapped up in nylon polytene bags were seen scattered on the road with some in a huge matted bag.
Per the video available, the police officer is seen exclaiming “They are not mine, I was just carrying them.” He could be seen bleeding from his hands as a result of the accident.
Aside from paying for the fines of petty offenders, Crime Check Foundation (CCF) has been relentless in its advocacy to help reduce crime. It has introduced programmes including the latest ‘Stay Away From Trouble’ as part of its crime prevention advocacy project.
Through these programmes CCF cautions the general public against acts that could land them in trouble in a bid to curb crime.
The Foundation screens one-on-one interviews with prison inmates bringing to bear acts that landed them in prison and the difficulties they face in custody
