Per the report, she later convinced the management of the tour company to recruit prospective travelers for her to secure visas for them at an agreed fee of $4,000 per passenger.

According to report, Lois further introduced one Henry Hanson Hall, a former Ghanaian Ambassador to Israel as her partner who was very influential in securing visas from the Israeli Embassy because according to Lois, Hanson was the one who lobbied for the new Israeli embassy to be re-opened in Ghana after 38 years of closure.

The report further revealed that, based on Lois’ submissions, the management of Don-Markus Travel and Tours subsequently run television and radio adverts from March to May 2019 on Adom TV, Adom FM, HSTV, Asempa FM among other networks to create awareness for the intended travel to Israel.

The travel and tour company was able to recruit a substantial number of travelers for the GTV presenter and consequently paid monies amounting to $62,100 into the personal accounts of Lois.

However, Lois requested to meet all the applicants in front of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation for an orientation before their departure date which was scheduled for 18th May 2019.

At the meeting, she informed the passengers that all monies paid to Don-Markus Travel and Tours have been paid to her so they {the passengers} do not have to bother the management of Don-Markus Travel & Tours anymore adding that they then belong to a group called Royal Christian Network but soon after taking charge of the group, Lois started behaving funny and created confusion amongst the travelers.

The executive director of the travel and tour firm Okang in an interview with Attractivemustapha.com said, “She (Lois) started changing the agreed price for the tour package and demanded monies that were not part of the agreement.”

According to Okang, when some of the passengers expressed their displeasure at the turn of events, Lois threatened to report them to the Israeli immigration when they get to the Israeli immigration border control on arrival in Israel so they may be deported back to Ghana and they would lose their money.

Okang noted that some of passengers who were deceived by Lois and his partner, Ambassador Hall thronged the Kotoka International Airport to stop her from running away with their monies but she told them they had not paid any money to her so they should go for their monies from the tour company.

A complaint was lodged with the police for her arrest upon arrival from her trip but that failed and a search was mounted for her arrest until she was spotted around Odorkor on Monday 24th June 2019 and the Odorkor Police was alerted to affect her arrest.

She has however been granted bail to report back to the police during the week for further investigations.
