Speaking in an interview with Rich Fm and Angel Fm/TV Reporter Kwame Owusu Asante Shadrack, the leader of group, Mr. Alex Donkoh explained that “the suspect whose name was given as Appiah Domnic, popularly known as Appiatus returned to the town after hiding for three months”.

Both the suspected fraudster and his brother-in-law, also a suspect were arrested.

“During interrogation, the parents of the suspects intervened and offered a bribe of ¢7,000 but was later increased to ¢10,000 to set the suspects free”, he revealed.
