Tema, May 15, GNA – A 33-year-old man who
posed as an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) to defraud unsuspecting
people is in the grips of the Tema Police Command.

Joshua Asante, who also claimed to be an IT
expert from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), was
arrested by the Ashaiman police for impersonation and defrauding on May 10,
2018.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Joseph
Benefo Darkwah, Public Relations Officer for the Tema Regional Police Command,
told the Ghana News Agency that Asante was arrested for impersonation and
defrauding.

DSP Darkwah said the suspect used the fake ACP
title to persuade his victims who were mostly his fellow church members to part
with various sums of money amounting GH¢6,100.00.

Asante, he noted, convinced his victims that
the money would be used to enlist into the Ghana Police Service.

After failing to honour his promise, his
victims reported him to the Ashaiman Police leading to his arrest.

The PRO added that Asante who was currently in
custody, would be arraigned before the court after investigations.
