An Accra Circuit Court on Friday remanded Tony Abogo, for conspiring to commit crime and stealing, contrary to sections 23(1) and 124(1) of Act 29/60.

Tony is alleged to have conspired with Wale, now at large and stole an amount of GH₡20,000.00, the property of Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB). Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Aidan Dery told the court that the complainant, Paulina Antua Baddoo was the Branch Manager at GCB, Spintex Road, Accra, whiles Tony is a Nigerian living at Lashibi.

He said in December 2013, the accused person, fraudulently transferred an amount of GH₡250,000.00 into his girlfriend, Matilda Adjoa Daquah’s account at GCB.

DSP Dery said on December 24, 2013, the suspect asked the girlfriend to go to the bank and withdraw GH₡2,000.00. He said the girlfriend was arrested at the bank when the bank realized that the transfer was fraudulent.

The prosecution told the court that, Matilda later lured the suspect who went into hiding to Lashibi Shell filling station, where he was arrested. Tony when arrested mentioned Wale, also a Nigerian as the one he gave the account details to him.
