‘Mbaa Nkomo’ hostess arrested

The police have arrested, Afia Ansah Ampene, a famous television hostess for issuing a dud cheque and jumping police enquiry bail.

Ampene is the hostess of a popular Ghana Television programme, ‘Mbaa Nkomo’.

Briefing The Ghanaian Times, the Airport Police Commander, Superintendent Yaw Tetegah said the suspect was arrested upon a tip-off.

The police had been looking for her since September, when she jumped police injury bail three months ago.

Afia, according to Supt. Tetegah on June 27, this year, bought 120 television sets from Grand Imperial Limited for resale, and issued two post-dated cheques which were found to be dud.

He said that the company reported the incident to the Airport Police which led to investigations.

Supt. Tetegah said the suspect was arrested on September 11, but released on bail, after her statement had been taken, adding that two sureties signed her bail form.

She was to report to the police, but she had since not done so, until her arrest on December 15, together with the sureties.
