40-year-old trader in police grips after defrauding police officer and fireman of GHc95,000

YEN.com.gh has learned that a 40-year-old trader, Doris Opoku, is in police grips for defrauding a couple.

The victims, both service officers, bought a house valued at GHc95,000 from Opoku, only to learn that it has been sold to someone else.

Opoku has therefore been charged with defrauding by false pretence and has been arraigned before a circuit court in Kumasi.

She was then admitted to bail in the sum of GHc95,000 with two sureties, one of which is to be justified by the court, which is presided over by Mary Nsenkyere.

This was after she had pleaded not guilty to the count but she is scheduled to reappear before the court on December 19, 2019.

Per a report by graphic.com.gh, she sold a seven-bedroom house at Amanfrom to Police Inspector Lydia Wemegah who is stationed at Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region and her husband, Mr Augustine Otu Appiah, a Fire Officer stationed at Winneba in the Central Region.

She later sold the same house to another person at a cost of GHc90,000 and later took another GHc5000 from the same person.

It has been established that she used the proceeds from the sales to put up another one at Asuofia Asamang where she resides.
