Ex-police officer granted bail for fraud

An Accra circuit court on Monday granted bail to an ex-police officer in the sum of GH¢12,000.00 with two sureties to be justified for his alleged involvement in fraud.


The ex-police officer, Harrison Ford Fenaku, however, denied the charge and would appear again in court on August 2.


Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) George Amega told the court presided by Madam Mariam Affoh that Frank Vardon is the prosecution witness and lives at Abeka.


According to prosecution, the witness met accused around 2016 at the Odorkor Police Church in Accra.


He said in May 2016, Fenaku took GH¢1,400.00 from Vardon to help him renew his driver’s license, but failed to do so after taking the money.


DSP Amega said the following month, Vardon was attacked and robbed of his car and Fenaku being an ex-police officer advised him to acquire a pistol for his protection.


They bargained over the price, and settled at GH¢9,000.00 as the cost of the gun, so Vardon issued a Unibank cheque to Fenaku to purchase a pistol from him.


DSP Amega said Fenaku told Vardon that the gun has to be registered so he brought a form purported to be that for registering the gun, but he never brought any gun.


A report was then made to the police and he was arrested on June 16, 2017.


Prosecution said Fenaku received GH¢1,600.00 in July 2017, and promised Vardon land instead of repaying the money for the gun, and Fenaku released land documents that turned out to be fake. – GNA
