A 33-year-old unemployed graduate, Ibrahim Inussah, was on Monday, arraigned before a Circuit Court in Sunyani for allegedly defrauding the Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of the Sunyani Technical University (STU) of an amount of GH¢39,220.00 through forgery of official documents.
Inussah was charged with three counts of forgery of official documents, an attempt to commit crime and stealing.
He, however, pleaded not guilty and the Court presided by Mr Sylvester Nii Okine Ablorh, granted him bail to the sum of GH¢100,000.00 with two sureties to justify, for him to reappear in Court on Tuesday, October 26, 2021.
Police Inspector Emmanuel Sampson, the prosecutor told the Court the accused on January 19, 2020, presented a GH¢5,000 cheque with number 000003 for withdrawal from the SRC National Investment Bank account with the number 1107000202001.
Though the account is at the Sunyani branch, he presented the cheque at the Wenchi branch, he said.
Inspector Sampson said the Bank contacted the Dean of Students at STU over the approval. The Bank was instructed to dishonour the cheque because the SRC had not sent the accused to make any withdrawal.
Sensing danger about the enquiries made about the cheque, the accused left the banking hall, leaving behind the cheque, a photocopy of his Ghana card and an old voter identification card, the prosecutor said.
Inspector Sampson added that on January 28, 2020, the accused presented another cheque to Zenith Bank, Kumasi main branch to transfer GH¢34,220 from the SRC account to his personal bank account.
He said soon after the transaction, the bank was prompted that the SRC had not authorised that transaction and the money was therefore reversed.
Inspector Sampson said on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, the accused came to the STU campus to collect his certificate where the Police was alerted and he was arrested.
