A Guinean is in the custody of the Hohoe Divisional Command after he allegedly defrauded a teacher of GH¢19, 500.

At a press briefing in Hohoe, the Divisional Crime Officer ASP Godwin Enim-Ansah narrated that the 35-year-old posed as High Court judge who had been transferred from Tamale to Hohoe.

According to ASP Enim-Ansah, Edward Gyau Wellington told the teacher he was in dire need of accommodation since the bungalow meant for him was occupied by another person.

Wellington gained more sympathy from Paulina Dogbe after he claimed to be a member of the Anglican Church. This is because Paulina Dogbe’s husband is the head of the Anglican Church in Hohoe.

The 35-year-old suspect subsequently promised to get a job for Paulina Dogbe’s 28-year-old daughter. Wellington demanded an amount of GH¢19, 500 to help him facilitate the process quickly.

After receiving the money, Wellington relocated to Ashaiman in the Greater Accra region.

He was arrested on August 26 after the family reported the case to the Hohoe Police. ASP Enim-Ansah said the Ashaiman Police assisted in arresting Wellington from his hideout.

ASP Enim-Ansah finally said that “in his (Wellington) caution statement to the police, the suspect admitted the offence and said he used the money to purchase a car.”
