Information reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that Hilarious Mawuli Appiah Breni, the former Abuakwa South Constituency Youth Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and current head of the Non-Formal Education Unit of the East Akim Municipal Assembly in the Eastern Region, has been arrested by the Kibi police for allegedly taking GH¢1,000.00 each from two people.
The suspect, currently on police enquiry bail, has been charged for defrauding two people [names withheld after taking their monies and promising them that he would recruit them into the Police Service.
DAILY GUIDE further gathered that Breni, who vied for the constituency youth organiser position but was defeated, allegedly used the money to buy votes from the delegates.
Inspector Latif, the Kibi Police Crime Officer, told this paper that the suspect three months ago, convinced the victims to give him GH¢1,000 each so that he would recruit them into the police service, when they approached him with a request that they needed a top
official of the ruling NDC help them with the recruitment.
The crime officer said that after the victims had parted with the money, the suspect failed to assist them and kept dodging them.
They kept searching for Breni to claim back the monies.
Having looked for him in vain, the angry victims went to report the NDC Youth Organiser to the police.
According to Inspector Latif, the police invited the suspect but he refused to turn up on five occasions, compelling them (police) to go for a bench warrant from the Kibi Magistrate Court, presided over by Alice Effuah Yirenkyi, to cause his arrest.
He further posited that, Mawuli last Friday came to the police station and brought only GH¢200 as part payment, but was charged for fraud and put before the court.
He added that the NDC man was later granted bail and was to reappear before the court on Tuesday for hearing.
