Businesswoman in court for defrauding 4 of GH¢26,600.00

Isha Tenu, a businesswoman, on Wednesday appeared before an Accra circuit court for allegedly defrauding four persons of amounts totaling GH¢26,600.00.

Isha pleaded not guilty to defrauding by false pretences, stealing and fraudulent breach of trust.

The court presided over by Ms Ruby Aryeetey admitted her to bail in the sum of GH¢ 26,700.00 with two sureties to appear again on November 28.

Prosecuting Sergeant B. Benneh said the complainants are Samuel Dague, an auto mechanic, Gladys Opoku, a petty trader, Simon Kaledze, a driver and Mercy Kankam, a cleaner.

Prosecution said Isha is the leader of a group known as Wisdom Youth Association located at Alajo, Accra.

In 2013, prosecution said Isha informed the complainants that the association bought cars for members after they had made monthly contributions to a certain amount as individuals.

The court heard that based on that information, the complainants opted to join the association and contributed monies totaling GH¢26,608.00 to the accused, but Isha after collecting the monies bolted.

The prosecutor said on July 7, this year, a complaint was lodged at the police station and accused was arrested.

During police interrogation, prosecution said Isha admitted the offence and explained that she had used the money to purchase items for other contributors. – GNA
