Danyagiri Mark is being held for masterminding financial scandal, which has robbed the institution of money at the blind side of authorities.

Investigations uncovered that he in connivance with others (names withheld) opened a duplicate account at Sunyani Branch of Stanbic Bank with the name D.V Drug Procurement Account, and divert money belonging to the stores into the account.

Danyagiri Mark and others stole cheques or altered cheques, and paid them into the fictitious Sunyani Branch (D.V Procurement Account), amounting to GHS163,000, to which the national service personnel was the sole signatory.

When he was arrested, he admitted to using part of the money to purchase an unregistered Toyota Corolla vehicle, amounting to GH¢78, 000 and gadgets including iPhones.

Police investigators also retrieved GH¢39, 975 cash from him at the time of arrest, which he admitted was part of the money he stole. – myjoyonline.com
