The Chinese national, Helena Huang, who was arrested in an attempt to smuggle four containers of rosewood in Tamale, has been granted bail.
She is, however, to report to the Northern Regional Police Command to assist authorities with investigations.
The 43-year-old woman was granted a police inquiry bail on Tuesday.
According to Adom News’ Northern Regional Correspondent, Illiasu Abdul Rauf, the reason for her bail is still unknown and the police after the suspect’s release have been dodging interviews.
Ms Huang was arrested at the Vittin police barracks near Tamale, after allegedly evading multiple checkpoints with four containers of rosewood.
According to the Northern Regional Police Crime Officer, Superintendent Otuo Acheampong, the suspect failed to produce her passport and other documents to show that she legally acquired the products, hence her arrest.
“Helena Huang claimed she is the owner of the rosewood and was transporting the product to Tema. Our initial investigations established that she did not have log measurement and conveyor certificate as well as a lumber inspection,” the police revealed after her arrest.
