A 32-year-old mobile money fraudster, Nurudeen Abdul Ganiyu, has been jailed for 10 years by a Wa circuit court.
Ganiyu reportedly duped several people, including the former Upper West Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alhaji Abdul-Rahman Abubakari affectionately called Alhaji Short.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, the convict was arrested in October 2018, and had in his possession over 30 registered SIM cards, which he registered with different names using falsified national identity cards.
YEN.com.gh understands that he succeeded in duping more than 50 people of various sums of money.
Proceeds of his activities spanning two-years have been channeled into the construction of a three-bedroom apartment located at the Driver Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) offices, one of the prime areas within the Wa municipality.
According to him, the house is at lintel level, but the court has ordered the confiscation of the property to the state.
Ganiyu was convicted on his own plea of guilt, and upon his arrest, showed no signs of remorse as he gave details of his modus operandi to the police.
