Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of EXOPA Modelling Agency, Ibrahim Sima

has reportedly died while serving a fifteen-year prison sentence.

He died on Thursday night at the Police Hospital in Accra after being

rushed there from Nsawam prison where he was serving a jail term for

trafficking narcotics.

Chief Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Prisons Service, DSP

Vitalis Aiyia explained that the convicted CEO was playing football

when he collided with the goalkeeper but did not complain of injuries

at the time.

Later in the evening he started complaining of pains and was rushed to

the Nsawam Government Hospital where his situation deteriorated. He

was sent to the Police Hospital where he died.

The PRO was unable to immediately confirm the cause of death but said

investigations are still ongoing.

The EXOPA boss was arrested on September 7, 2009 at the Kotoka

International Airport when a luggage search revealed tubers of yam in

which were embedded narcotic substances.

Ibrahim was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment in 2011 for the

attempted narcotics smuggling.

Sima denied the charges and told officials of the Narcotics Control

Board, who interrogated him after his arrest, that the yams were

given to him by one Salifu who resides in Nima, a suburb of Accra, to

be given to a friend for a fee of 3,000 Euros.
