Police Arrest Two Nigerians For Defrauding A German

Two Nigerians BustedTwo Nigerians have been arrested by the police for defrauding a German of an amount of 248,157.91 Euros and 350,000 pounds.
The two, who pretended to be Ghanaians, are Mark Adijum Latif, alias Mark Adjei Tofic, 56 and Oluwashola Ajisafe alias Benjamin K. Osei, 43.

Briefing the media in Accra yesterday, the Greater Accra Regional Police Commander, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Christian Tetteh Yohuno, said between the years 2011 and 2012, the suspects and their accomplices who claimed to be gold miners, lured Waltraus Wiescent, a German, into Ghana to do mining.

According to him, the suspects told the victim that one of their colleagues in the mining business had been arrested by the police for mining without permit, and that they needed 375,000 Euros for his release and to obtain mining permit from the minerals commission.

He said the suspects then showed the victim two boxes alleged to be containing gold worth $120 million and cash of $125million.
DCOP Yohuno said the suspects later gave their bank account numbers to the victim through which she paid the said amount, adding that after the suspects collected the money, they failed to honour their word.

The police arrested the suspects on July 5, at the Kotoka International Airport at about  2 p.m., and have since been detained for further investigations. He advised foreigners who wish to do business in Ghana to contact their embassies rather than contacting individuals. - Agnes Opoku Sarpong
