A 38-year-old banker has been arrested by the police for stealing GHC 11,000 from a deceased customer’s account.
Kwabena Adu Gyamfi has been arraigned before the Accra Circuit Court but he pleaded not guilty to the offence and allegations.
He has, however, been granted a GH 15,000 cedis bail with three sureties, one to be justified.
The accused person claims it was the late Nana Adu Gyamfi Kwamaning III, who asked him to transfer GH 6,000 cedis and 5,000 cedis to one Sarah Sosu, now at large and himself respectively.
The accused further alleged that Nana Kwamaning III, who died last year, subsequently came for the money after it was transferred.
Gyamfi is to reappear on January 19, 2017, before the court presided over by Ms Eva Bannerman Williams.
Prosecuting Detective Chief Inspector Isaac Agbemahia, said the complainant was Maxwell Caleb Nortey Newman, a banker with the Forensic Investigation Department of Barclays Bank Head office Accra.
Chief Inspector Agbemahia said the accused person was with Customer Life Circle Management, a department of the bank branch at Knutsford, Accra.
