The former  boss  of Ghana Real Estate Developers Association (GREDA) Dr. Alex Tweneboah is in the grips of the police for allegedly engaging in SIM box fraud.

Dr Tweneboah and 17 others were arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) within a seven-month operation which was in collaboration with the National Communications Authority and SUBAH Info Solutions Ghana Limited.

The officer who led the operations ASP Seth Tewornu confirmed the arrest of Dr. Tweneboah to Joy News.

Meanwhile, at a media briefing today, Director General of the CID, DCOP Prosper Agblorh said the nation has lost more than one hundred million cedis as a result of the practice.
