In an interview with SVTV Africa, George said his younger brother betrayed him. He sent him a total of £10,000 (GH¢144,000) to build a house for him in Ghana.

He alleged that his brother tricked him into sending more money by claiming some equipment had been stolen.

“Meanwhile, I intended to gift him a piece of land after he was done with my house. When I visited Ghana, I found out the theft was a lie. My brother took some electrical in my name and sold them off. I heard he hurriedly painted the house when I arrived in Ghana."

George explained that when he was coming to Ghana, he thought he only had to drill and fix windows. But he got to the building site and saw that there was no concrete or POP. Doors had not been fixed or bought even though he sent money for them.

I almost went mad. I cried like a baby. After the first night, I never saw him again."

George further stated that his brother misused the money he sent initially meant for the purchase of land.

“The estate agent told me he had not finished payment. I had to pay GH¢20,000 to get the land back. This is not a friend but my biological brother." George spoke amidst tears.
