The Amasaman Circuit Court has remanded three suspects for duping hundreds of people of varied amount of money under the pretext of securing them employment with the Forestry Commission.

The suspects, Prince Adams Senahia, aged 20; Olongo Philip aged 19 and a 17-year-old minor; were posing as officers of the commission using the name of the Executive Director for Forest Services Division, Oppong Sasu to dupe people.

Some of the victims reported the issue to the Achimota police leading to the arrest of the suspects.

The three were charged with impersonation and defrauding by false pretense and were subsequently arraigned before court.

His Lordship Marful Sau after taking the plea of the suspects remanded them for investigations to continue.

The court later adjourned the case to May 23, 2020.

Speaking to Adom News after the court proceeding, the Corporate Affairs and Media Relations Manager of the Forestry Commission, Joyce Ofori Kwafo warned the public to disregard people who pose as middlemen to secure employment for them.

According to her, the commission does not also use individuals to recruit people for employment.
