Drug Actress Akinwande Taiwo Hassanat a.k.a. Wunmi was arraigned before a Federal High Court this morning in connection with alleged drug trafficking. When the matter was called, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) Director of Prosecution and Legal Services, Femi Oloruntoba appearing with R.J. Mekaye, NDLEA’s assistant legal officer, urged the court to allow the charge filed on 8 November this year against the accused person to be read to her hearing and understanding so that her plea can be taken.

However, the accused actress told the court that she does not understand English. The court then ordered one of the court officials, Mr. Elizabeth Iziah, to interpret the charge to her in Yoruba. Amidst sobbing, the accused, who was represented by Benson Ndakara, pleaded not guilty to the charge. After the plea had been taken, Oloruntoba told the court that in view of the plea of the accused person, he was asking for a short time to enable him bring all his witnesses to court. He further urged the court to remand her in prison custody.

Ndakara did not oppose the application. Consequently, the presiding Judge, Justice Muhammed Raji, adjourned the matter till 23 November (Thursday this week), for the trial to commence. Thereafter, the judge ordered that the accused be remanded in Kirikiri Prison. Hassanat Akinwande Taiwo was arrested by officials of the NDLEA on Saturday 23, September 2006 on her way to London. She was about to board a Virgin Atlantic plane at Murtala Muhammed International Airport when she was allegedly caught with substances suspected to be cocaine which she had swallowed. During interrogation, it was alleged that she had excreted abut 92 wraps of cocaine.

Yes o! Let's get real!!! We are not trying to be judgemental as no one is perfect, but haba!!! she couldn't have swallowed all those wraps in ignorance. I have been praying for her because I really feel sorry for such a talented actress who should have been content, as her daily bread was sure in that profession (Roles just fall on her laps).
Oh yeah, it's now that she suddenly doesn't understand English. Meanwhile, she was on her way to England before being caught :1087: .

I read it in punch too, they even put her pics there. And i hear she covered her face with a veil when she saw press people but they ordered the officials to remove her veil which they did and cameras started rolling...

A popular actress, Hassanat Taiwo Akinwande (a.k.a. Wunmi), wept profusely on Tuesday when her trial for alleged cocaine trafficking commenced. Despite her emotions in the dock, the actress was remanded in prison custody. Hassanat was arraigned before Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed of a Federal High Court in Lagos by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on a one-count charge of unlawfully possessing 1.214 kilogrammes of cocaine.

File
Hassanat Taiwo Akinwande (aka Wunmi)

She was brought to the court around 10.10 am in an unmarked Peugeot 504 station wagon. As soon as she alighted from the car, the actress, who looked frail, quickly pulled a veil over her head.

Her action elicited instant protests from journalists, who requested the NDLEA officials to order her to remove the veil.

With the veil off, cameras clicked and television crews struggled to capture the image of one of the characters in Feyikogbon, a Yoruba television programme that promotes moral values.

Indeed, it was a moment during which her sorrow deepened. Not even her fans and colleagues in the Yoruba home video industry were around to console her.

But looking a bit relaxed when she walked into the court room later, Hassanat, said to be one of the scandal -free artistes in the Nollywood, listened to a ruling on another matter by Justice Mohammed.
