A Techiman Circuit court presided over by Justice Sylvester Nii Okai has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman for Banda Constituency in the Bono East Region over his alleged involvement in a recruitment scam.
The Chairman is alleged to have used the name of the General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu in defrauding several persons in the area.
Charles Kofi Agyei is said to be on the run after he allegedly took monies from a fuel station manager to the tune of GH¢45,000 under the guise of getting him recruited into the Ghana National Fire Service.
According to the facts of the case as presented to the court by the Prosecutor, Emmanuel Kudalor, the NPP executive assured the Manager of the station identified as Mahama of protocol recruitment into the Ghana National Fire Service.
Using that as a basis, he succeeded in taking an amount of GH¢45,000 from Mahama ( the victim) claiming he was going to use that to influence some “big men’ in order get him to be recruited.
