Volta Regional Police Command arrests 3 persons involved in recruitment scams

The Volta Regional Police Command has arrested 3 persons at Akatsi in the Ketu South Municipality for their alleged involvement in a recruitment fraud.

The 3, Bernard Amenya, 18, Godsway Adzikah, 23, and Godson Wemegah 21, were arrested on September 14, for a fraudulent Facebook advertisement which offers to assist applicants who want to be enlisted into the Ghana Police Service.

The post is purported to have been created by the Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Edward Oduro Kwarteng.

A statement signed by a Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Efia Tenge, said preliminary investigations revealed that many victims had paid sums of money to the fraudsters with the hope of being favoured in the ongoing recruitment.

 It said the said publication was advertising to assist potential applicants to be enlisted into the Ghana Police Service.

The statement said the Command is not responsible for recruiting persons into the Service, as such, desperate applicants should be wary of protocol allocations being offered all over the place.

It said the Command remained resolute in pursuit of recruitment charlatans in the Region and has arrested 5 suspects in the past weeks.

It urged persons who had fallen victim to the said scam to report to the Command to assist in investigation and prosecution.
