The Accra Circuit Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of two bankers who allegedly operated an illegal microfinance company and duped another banker of Gh¢40,000.

The two, Gideon Asamoah Asante, Prince Takyi Turkson, together with Albert Akrofi Ocansey and Kofi Osam Armah, all bankers, were said to have operated an illegal microfinance company and used it to defraud people.

They created a company known as Mak Asset Management Limited and used it to conduct their illegal business, the prosecution said.

The four suspects have been charged with conspiracy to carry out banking business without license, carrying out banking business without license, conspiracy to defraud by false pretence and defrauding by false pretence

But when the case was called last Wednesday, two of the suspects, Asante and Turkson were nowhere to be found, the Daily Graphic reports.

The court presided over by Mrs Janet Harriet Akweley Quaye subsequently issued a bench warrant for their arrest.

The prosecutor, Detective Chief Inspector Isaac Agbemehia, had before this told the court that the two were currently on the run.

The other two suspects, Ocansey and Armah, who were present, pleaded not guilty to all the charges and were granted bail in the sum of Ghc 100, 000 each with two sureties each.

They issued a cheque of Ghc 2,000 as part payment for the Ghc 40,000 at the hearing.
