Some of the stranded West African nationals at Abuakwa police station

Police at Abuakwa in Kumasi have arrested four people said to be linked to network marketing company, QNET, over suspected scam to which 29 West African nationals have fallen victim.

The West African nationals were allegedly lured into Ghana under the pretext of securing them jobs in a mining firm for which they were charged $750 each.

They later discovered they have been recruited to undertake network marketing, something they objected to.

Efforts to retrieve their monies have been unsuccessful, compelling them to live on the benevolence of people for survival.

The foreigners, both males and females, include Gambians, Malians and Sierra Leoneans, insist they have been swindled.

They, however, arrived in Ghana, in February only to learn the deal was rather for network marketing.

Mohammed Bonga, 29; a Gambian-born Sierra Leonean and Tsiedie, 26, arrived in Ghana on February 25, thinking they have landed their dream job.

But it turned out to be a fiasco after the supposed agents collected $750 each from them.

Police at Abuakwa are investigating the matter after initially arresting one person last Thursday.

Subsequently, three others, including two agents of QNET were picked up on Friday.

Abuakwa District Commander, Chief Superintendent Yaw Obeng Asubonteng, who confirmed the story say his outfit has launched investigations into the matter.
