Reports say upon reaching the shop, Yankey who had earlier identified himself as a Naval Officer at Sekondi to the forex bureau operator told him he was there to exchange 2000USD.

He sat down with his accomplice and told the operator that they were waiting for a third person.

According to police sources, whilst there Emmanuel Ohene Gyan asked the bureau operator to give him GHC700 to send to a friend and promised to reimburse the operator after his cash exchange is done.

However, at the close of business, the third person never showed up.

The bureau operator then asked the suspect to give him the dollar equivalent of the GHC700 he had earlier given him, but he could not produce the money.

Out of curiosity, Emmanuel’s bag was searched and only plain papers shaped like dollar notes were found neatly packed in it. The two were arrested and sent to the Market Circle Police Station.

During interrogation, Emmanuel confessed to Police that he is a civilian employee at the Sekondi Naval Base. The two suspects are therefore in police custody helping in further investigation and a possible prosecution.
