Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Scandal! Part Of US$100,000 Ransom Vanish From Bank

Related Stories
What may turn out to be a scandal is brewing in Ghana’s Police Service after the discovery that the remaining US$49,000 ransom Nigeria’s most wanted criminal, Emmanuel Emeka Nwangu ‘M’ lodged into his Barclays Bank account has been cashed by some senior police officers and allegedly shared among themselves.

According to very reliable sources, the IGP, Paul Tawiah Quaye, after learning about this scandal immediately ordered the bureau of Police Intelligence & Professional Standards (PIPS) to investigate the case.
A senior police officer who was questioned by PIPS as a result gave conflicting reports to the PIPS bosses.

After admitting that the money had been cashed from the hitherto frozen accounts of Emeka Nwangu, he allegedly claimed that the money had been lodged into the Police Foundation Accounts. He later changed his story claiming that the money had been handed over to a senior police officer for safe keeping.

A senior police officer in charge of the case who the Daily Post talked to yesterday confirmed that the money had been withdrawn but claimed that it is in the custody of the police for safe keeping.
A deep throat source within the Service, however, maintains that the money had been cashed and shared and thus the various claims by the police bosses were an attempt to throw sand into the eyes of the public.

“Why should they cash it in the first place?” the deep throat source wondered. The Daily Post is wrapping up investigations into the matter and would reveal the identities of police officers named in this scandal.
