The British High Commissioner to Ghana Jon Benjamin has denied reports that the Central Regional NDC chairman has been arrested at the Heathrow Airport for money laundering.
Rumors were rife on social media Sunday that vociferous Allotey Jacobs was busted by the UK National Crime Agency on suspected money laundering and cocaine trafficking.
Speaking to Starr News, the UK High Commissioner said there is no iota of truth in the report.
“It’s not true. I have nothing else to add than to say it is not true,” Benjamin stressed in the interview.
Later in a tweet, Benjamin added: “I can confirm that the rumour about Mr.
Jacobs is definitely not true…Mr. Allotey Jacobs transited Heathrow this morning without incident.”
