Two accounts officers have been grabbed over their alleged transfer of GH¢133,000 from the account of the Ahafo-Ano South District Assembly in the Ashanti Region, into another account.
The amount was said to be the assembly’s share of the District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF) for the third quarter of 2015. The deal was uncovered after the assembly’s accounts had been audited by its auditors and the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).
The two suspects, Felix Fordjour and Basoa Kodua are currently on bail pending investigations. According to the Mankranso District Police Commander the suspects were accused of forging the signatures of the District Finance Officer and the Co-ordinating Director before transferring the money from the assembly’s account.
Preliminary investigations had revealed that other accomplices of the suspects cashed the money shortly after it had been deposited in a different account.
