- Ibrah One was allegedly arrested after a young man reported him for defrauding him
- According to the young man known as Stephen Gabriel Heloo, he was defrauded of a sum of $400,000
A few days ago, news broke that Ibrah One, touted as Ghana’s richest young man, was arrested by Interpol after a tip off that he was heavily involved in money laundering which is classified as a serious crime.
When news broke, social media went agog and reports that followed were that other names were going to be mentioned and implicated as money launderers.
According to a report sighted on Ghpage.com by YEN.com.gh, the young man who brought all this heat on Ibrah One is known as Stephen Gabriel Heloo.
The report had it that Ibrah One took an amount of $400,000 from Stephen Gabriel Heloo with the promise of giving him $20,000 monthly as profit.
However, Ibrah One did not keep his word and went into hiding with Stephen Gabriel Heloo’s money.
Heloo, after several pleas and calls to Ibrah One to refund the money proved futile, resorted to the authorities and ended up blowing the cover of Ibrah One leading to his arrest.
It has been reported that a joint taskforce of Interpol and BNI officials carried out a swoop at Ibrah’s residence picking him up after he had allegedly tried to flee the country to South Africa.
After his arrest, a rather livid Ibrah threatened to leak the names of other money launderers to Interpol since he was not willing to ‘go down alone’.
