Musician, Akosua Adjepong, and an accomplice, who allegedly defrauded a businessman in a land deal have refunded ¢55,000 to the businessman.
The musician and a man known as Frank Agyemang, aka, Killer Boss, are standing trial at the Accra Circuit Court for allegedly defrauding the businessman of ¢105,000 in the land deal.
The two have pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit crime and fraudulent transaction land.
It is the case of the prosecution the two accused sold the land, which apparently did not belong to them, to the businessman.
At Tuesday’s court hearing, the prosecutor, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ms Agnes Boafo, informed the court that the accused have refunded ¢55,000 out of the ₵105,000 to the businessman.
Hearing continues on December 18, 2018.
Per the facts of the case as presented by ASP Boafo, the complainant in the case is a car merchant while Agyemang claimed to be a building contractor.
She explained that in February 2017, the businessman wanted a parcel of land by the roadside to display his cars for sale. As a result, he contacted Akosua Adjepong for assistance.
The musician, the prosecutor said, told the businessman that she had a plot of land for rent, but the businessman wanted an outright sale.
“Later Akosua introduced Agyemang to the businessman as her brother who had one plot of land opposite the West Hills Mall for sale. The businessman after inspecting the land showed interest,’’ she said.
ASP Boafo added that the highlife maestro assured the businessman that the land was genuine and Agyemang was the rightful owner.
“They then took the businessman to the Lands Commission, went into one of the offices and came out with someone who confirmed that the land indeed belonged to Agyemang, and upon this, the businessman became convinced,’’ she said.
Afterwards, the prosecutor said, the businessman paid ¢105,000 for the land and later gave a Toyota RAV 4 vehicle valued at ₵100,000 to Agyemang for another plot of land.
“When the businessman went to work on the land, another person came to claim ownership of the land with original documents. He reported the matter to the police leading to Akosua and Agyemang’s arrest. Agyemang, however, released the vehicle to the police,’’ the prosecutor added.
