Another British fugitive arrested in Ghana

A British national has been arrested in Ghana upon the request of the British authorities to their counterparts in Ghana.

David Philip McDermott is currently in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), having fled the United Kingdom following a drug related offense.

The fugitive faces extradition to the UK. According to Radio Ghana, McDermott is one of the most wanted persons in Britain.

Details of his offense are not public.

It will be recalled that early February, another British fugitive, who allegedly murdered his girl¬friend and two children in the UK and fled to Ghana, was arrested in the Western region.

He has since been deported to face trial.
