The Madina Divisional Police Command has arrested 10 Nigerians suspected of fraudulent activities.
According to a report by citinewsroom.com, the Madina Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Charles Domanban, stated that they were picked up at Ashongman in Accra.
The suspects are Diamond Andy, Benson Romeo, Randy Samuel, Kelvin Agho and Osas Igbo. The rest are David Okondu, Praise Onyekwena, Ohis David, Duru Wisdom, and Uyi Ighodaro.
ACP Domanban revealed that on March 21, 2018, the Kwabenya Police Patrol team, trailed a taxicab whose occupants appeared suspicious to them to Oforikrom, a suburb of Ashongman Estates.
He said the team followed the taxi to a-four-bedroom house and on their arrival, other tenants attempted to escape, but they were all quickly rounded up.
Taking into consideration the number of suspects picked up, the patrol team requested for reinforcement and the Kwabenya District Commander led the “Combat 9” team to the scene.
The patrol team intercepted nine laptop computers, six internet modems, five mobile phones and fifty-four SIM cards from the suspects.
ACP Domanban said the case had been referred to the Cyber Crime Unit at the Police Headquarters for further investigations.
