Accra, November 29, GNA-A forty-one year old pastor who posed as a Police officer and collected 3,000.00 Ghana cedis from three persons under the pretext of enlisting them into the Ghana Police Service has appeared before the Enchi District Magistrate court.

The accused, Gideon Nkrumah, who claims to be the founder of Messiah Power Ministry church with branches in Accra, Amasaman, Elubo and Asemkrom was charged with impersonation and defrauding by false pretenses.

He pleaded guilty to both counts and the court presided over by His worship Mr Eric Baah Boateng remanded him into Police custody to reappear on Tuesday December 3, 2019.

Prosecuting, Detective Sergeant Richard Hackman Addae, told the court that, the complainants; Ruben Tetteh, Augustine Andoh Amoah and Mary Animah are teachers at Boinso in the Aowin Municipality, while the accused resides at Elubo in the Jomoro District.

He said at about 1600 hours, on November 19, this year, the Boinso Police had a tip off that the accused had arrived in the Boinso community and was claiming to some residents that he was a Police officer stationed at Elubo and that he was on special undercover investigation in the town.

He said on that same day at about 1700 hours Nkrumah proceeded to the Boinso Police station and introduced himself to the duty bearers as a police officer with service number 43 D/Sgt from Elubo.

He said after the introduction the accused left the police station but the officers on duty secretly followed him and nabbed him at his hideout.

The prosecution said while the officers were interrogating the accused at the Police station; Tetteh, Amoah and Animah arrived to lodge a complaint that the accused person has collected a sum of GHC 3,000.00 from them with the assurance of assisting them to get enlisted into the Ghana Police Service.

He said the accused admitted the offence and after investigations he was arraigned.
