The Nigerian man ‘Solo Pounds’ who was accused of belonging to an internet scamming syndicate and armed robbery gang, is currently in police custody and will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded, according to Ghanaian police.
This is coming few days after Tema Regional Police Command in Ghana arrested 13 Nigerians, in its bid to clamp down on criminal activities in the metropolis. Two of the arrested suspects, Frank Inyang Thomas, 40, and Segun Mustapha, 36, were described by police as members of a syndicate that trail and rob people who withdraw money from banks. The suspects were arrested in a silver colour private Toyota Corolla car at the Meridian Cluster of Banks.
The Ghanaian police reportedly arrested Thomas and Mustapha who linked to stealing GH¢14,000.00 from a vehicle parked at Franco Phones, near the Ghana Water Company, at Community One on October 26. The suspects were captured in a closed-circuit television camera installed at the shop.
After their arrest, the suspects led the police to their place of abode at Abokobi No. 2 in Sakumono, and further investigations led to the arrest of 11 others, suspected to be cyber fraudsters.
