Top Tamale radio presenter,  Nuhu Abu Hassan, also known as DJ Maestro has been jailed for 4 years by a Circuit Court for fraud.

According to the Daily Guide, he  duped a member of the Federal Council of Germany, Hans Dieter Heirrich, through the internet. Heirrich fell to Maestro’s scams over a period of time after he expressed interest in investing in the Northern region of Ghana.

A well-known presenter who was recently nominated for Best Hiplife DJ in the region, he was arrested and later granted bail after a complaint was lodged that he had defrauded his victim to the tune of $17,000, claiming it was meant for building a house at Sagnarigu, a suburb in Tamale.

The accused and his victim met through the internet nine months ago and struck an acquaintance.

The German legislator later expressed interest in owning a house in Tamale and asked if his new-found friend could be of assistance, and the radio presenter obliged.

The German MP then asked Nuhu Abu Hassan to find out the quotations for him to wire the money for the purpose of building a befitting house for him, but the suspect took fake drawings and emailed to him.

The cash was subsequently sent and after some months, he sent the German MP pictures of a house that rather belonged to his neighbours.

Unknown to him, the German paid a surprise visit to Ghana and dashed to the North only to realise that he had been duped, since there was no house as claimed by the radio presenter.

A complaint was therefore lodged with the police leading to the presenter’s arrest.
