He had enjoyed the luxurious and affluent life, being the husband of Ramona Wampah, daughter of the BoG Governor
Britain’s biggest drug lord was living the high life in Ghana while married with a child to the daughter of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) Governor, Dr Henry Kofi Wampah. David McDermott, 42, had been hunted by elite detectives since a mammoth cocaine haul was seized in the UK in 2013. He is said to be connected to a smuggling plot to import £71 million worth of cocaine into the UK
He was being hunted by the National Crime Agency and was finally arrested on Friday, in an international sting operation at his home in the Burma Hills area of the country’s capital Accra this week. David, who appears to be hiding out in the country, having married one of Ghana’s top elite’s daughter, was living like an African king as no one had a clue he was on the run from the Feds.
He had enjoyed the luxurious and affluent life being the husband of Ramona Wampah, daughter of the BoG Governor. Living in a high brow area in Accra with his wife and child, he was sure having a good time of his life when his cover was blown by the National Crime Agency.
Subsequently there have been questions and speculations as to how much the family knew about him or the case.
Reports say the alleged drug lord is ready to fight his case intensively, as he has contacted his lawyers to appeal his extradition. Obvious enough, the alleged drug lord has sufficient resources to oppose his extradition. But regardless, extradition proceedings are set to start within days.
So far no statements have been released by the BoG Governor, whose son in-law is on the virge of going behind bars. More details on this to come to you soon. Stay tuned.
