A 39-year old businessman at Amasaman in the Ga West Municipality of the Greater Accra Region, who tricked a into supplying him with goods on credit and ended up blowing money made from the sale of the goods has been arrested by the police to face criminal charges.
Emmanuel Omani had taken delivery of 465 standing fans valued at Ghs95,325.00 from the Amakye Group of Companies Limited for supply to his customers and he had asked to be given a space of one week to make payment.
He would neither send the money he made from the sale of the standing fans to the suppliers nor return the goods.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Company, which has been dealing in imported goods, Frank Yin, would however, not be swindled and filed a formal report with the police leading to the arrest of Emmanuel Omani.
He has since been dragged by the police to stand trial for defrauding by false pretenses. He coughed up Ghs23,000.00 after the police arrested.
Emmanuel Omani told the Accra Circuit Court that he is not guilty of any wrongdoing. The Circuit Court presided over by Evelyn Asamoah granted him bail in the sum of Ghs80,000.00.
He was ordered by the circuit court to make his next appearance on Monday, May 30, 2022 for proceedings to continue.
Police Chief inspector Benson Benneh told the court that Omani had collected the 465 standing fans under the pretext of supplying them to his customers and to return money from the sale after a period of one week.
That was in January, this year but after selling the standing fans to his supposed customers, he kept the money and would not make any payment to the suppliers.
Omani raised Ghs23,000.00 to make part-payment after he was arrested by the police.
