Accra - Ghana police have arrested six Nigerian nationals for allegedly forging letterheads of the Office of the Ghanaian President and other state institutions and subsequently defrauding people.
The suspects were named as Paul Kelvin (20), Wallace Darden Odon (28), Osamidiamwen Ikecheku Emeka (24), Prince Ejime (19), Charles Chinedu (32) and Adebayoo Alaba Saheed (21).
They have since been charged with forging documents and signatures and posing as state officials as well as deceit of public officers after allegedly supplying police with false names during interrogation.
The Accra Regional Crime Officer, Chief Superintendent of Police, Paul Kontomah, said the suspects were arrested in a house at Ayensu Estate, near Adenta in Accra.
“We found them busy browsing the internet in their room with laptops,” he said.
Police retrieved eight laptops and a number of other forged documents from state institutions.
Among the letters retrieved from the suspects was one directing a former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to take his compulsory leave for Mohammed Alhassan, the current IGP, to take over the position.
There were also certificates signed by the Minister of Interior, Kwesi Ahwoi, to prove the origins of some American citizens, as well as High Court disclaimer forms.
