Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that a suspected fraudster, Nurudeen Abdul-Ganiyu, has been arrested for engaging in mobile money fraud.
The suspect reportedly defrauded over 50 people of an amount of GHC150,000 to complete a 3-bedroom house.
According to the Deputy Regional Police Commander, ACP Peter Ndekugri, the police have been searching for him since August 2018.
He added that Abdul-Ganiyu was arrested after the police received information that he was in Tamale in the Northern Region.
The suspect confirmed that he had registered numerous SIM cards with different names explaining “all you have to do is mention the supposed ID number of the requested identification card.”
He revealed that his first victim was the former Upper West Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alhaji Abdul-Rahman Short.
Alhaji Short who expressed shock at the young man’s confession stated that the young man had requested for help with his school fees.
Abdul-Ganiyu admitted, “anytime I am talking to someone I change my voice so already fallen victims do not recognize my voice.”
He revealed that most of the money has gone into the building of his three-bedroom bungalow.
ACP Peter Ndekugri stated, “we have about 13 names of people he has conned as of now and the least amount he took from them is GHȻ1,500.”
He appealed to all service providers to strengthen their security processes in all aspects to minimize mobile money fraud.
