Information reaching Sportscrusader.com has it that Hearts striker Maxwell Boakye has been hit with a theft scandal after the player forged the signature of his colleague to withdraw money from his account.
According to a Hearts of Oak source who disclosed this to sportscrusader.com said Boakye who is a roommate to goalkeeper Kinsley Kissi managed to issue a cheque on behalf of the keeper and forged his signature as well to withdraw an amount of GH¢200.00 from the keeper’s bank account.
Officials of the Bank of Africa, where the goalkeeper saves, were alerted when they received a text from Kissi that he had not withdrawn or issued any cheque to anyone to withdraw such an amount. But this was after the bank had sent him a message to that effect, via the internet banking program.
Alarmed by the incident, officials of the bank invited Kinsley to the Bank for further clarification and upon reaching there it was revealed from the CCTV footage that it was rather Maxwell Boakye who came to withdraw the money with a cheque issued from the keeper.
“He managed to withdraw an amount of GH¢200.00 from Kissi’s account”, the source said.
He said the Police in the company of some officials of Bank of Africa stormed the Hearts training grounds yesterday afternoon to affect the arrest of Maxwell, but the coach Mohammed Polo and his assistants managed to weather the storm by asking the Bank to withdraw the case with the plea that they will settle it amicably among themselves.
“When the bank officials and the Police came to the training grounds, the player is question Maxwell Boakye who was actively participating in the day’s training program, did not deny the incident rather he apologized pleading for mercy adding that it was the work of the devil.”
Though the Police and the Bank officials left without making the arrest, the source further added that they were not satisfied with the outcome and promised to allow the full rigors of the law to take its course.
