The Offinso Circuit Court in the Ashanti Region has remanded a 48-year-old teacher into police custody for allegedly defrauding two pastors of an amount of ¢58,700.

Isaac Danso is said to have defrauded Bernard Kokroko and Eric Owusu, under the pretext of securing them positions in the security agencies.

The pastors also informed their congregations of the opportunities presented by the suspect.

After receiving the sum of ¢58,700 from the pastors, the tutor at Namon Senior High School at Offinso, allegedly went hiding at Akuapem Mampong in the Eastern Region.

The Offinso Police tracked and arrested the suspect at his hideout.

Mr Danso was arraigned before the Offinso Circuit Court and remanded into police custody to reappear on March 4, 2021.

Chief prosecutor, DSP Edmund Nyamekye says police will continue with investigations.
