Visa Fraudster Arrested in Ashanti Region

Police in the Ashanti Region have arrested a 47-year-old fraudster who has been swindling victims under the pretext of securing them visas, facilitating their recruitment into the armed forces, as well as getting them government appointments and contracts in some state institutions.

According to police, the suspect, George Koduah, alias Nana Yaw, has been using the office of the Ashanti Regional Minister and the Minister of Defence to secure top jobs and positions for his victims.

The suspect has managed to collect between GHS 4,000 and GHS 6,000 from the unsuspecting persons but failed to honour his promise.

Koduah went into hiding after the act until he was arrested on Tuesday May 23, 2017.

Ashanti regional police commander DCOP Ken Yeboah, addressing a news conference, cautioned the general public to be wary of such persons.
