How Ghanaian Actress Kumiwaa was arrested wrongly for drug trafficking in U.S
It’s really been long since we saw veteran Kumawood actress Kumiwaa, aka ‘Sapofo’, on our screens.
But Kumiwaa has finally surfaced to tell her behind the scene story and it’s very heartbreaking.
Naomi Kumiwaa Banafo was on Nana Ama Mcbrown‘s show to reveal how she’s been humiliated and arrested of drug trafficking in the U.S when she knew completely nothing about it.
She noted some men contacted her to shoot a movie with them in the United States, but they ended up depositing cocaine in her luggage.
According to her, she had no knowledge of what those men did until she was busted at the airport for drug trafficking.
Kumiwaa noted she was jailed over a year where she showed up in court once in every month until she was proven innocent and finally deported to Ghana.
” I was in shock when it dawned on me that the guys had used me for their dubious ways. I was placed in jail and made to report in court once every month. After one year and a month, I reported to court and I was told that investigations conducted revealed that I was actually innocent and will be sent to Ghana after a week. I cried my heart out like a baby,” the veteran actress recounted.
