According to CID’s Director of Operations, ACP Peter Gyimah, in an interview with Daily Guide, Naana paraded herself as a car dealer and conned people who wanted to buy cars.

ACP Peter Gyimah indicated that Naana had a number of cars going around town with ‘For Sale’ inscriptions on them. When potential buyers called her, she in turn took them to see the ‘owners’ of the cars who are her accomplices. Naana then collected some agreed sums of money from the buyers and handed them fake car keys and documents.
