Six Nigerians have been arrested for allegedly forging letterheads of the Office of the Ghanaian President and other state institutions to defraud people, a Ghanaian newspaper reported on Friday.
They are Paul Kelvin, 20; Wallace Darden Odon, 28; Osamidiamwen Ikechukwu Emeka, 24; Prince Ejime, 19; Charles Chinedu, 32, and Adebayo Alaba Saheed, 21.They are all unemployed. They have since been charged with forging documents and signatures and posing as state officials, and because they gave false names to the police during interrogation, they have also been charged with deceit of public officers.
The Accra Regional Crime Officer, Chief Superintendent of Police Paul Kontomah, said the suspects were arrested in a house at Ayensu Estate, near Adenta in Accra, on June 9.Among the letters retrieved from the suspects was one directing a former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to take his compulsory leave for Mr Mohammed Alhassan, the current IGP, to take over the position.
There were also certificates signed by the Minister of Interior, Mr Kwesi Ahwoi, to prove the origins of some American citizens, as well as High Court disclaimer forms. Mr Kontomah said the police, acting on intelligence that the young men were involved in criminal activities, swooped onthem in the early hours of June 9 “and we found them busy browsing the Internet in their room with laptops.”
