The Volta Regional Police Command, on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, arrested three young men for engaging in police recruitment scam.
They were arrested after they made a publication on Facebook purported to have been created by the Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Mr. Edward Oduro Kwarteng, seeking to assist potential applicants to be enlisted into the Ghana Police Service.
Amenyah Bernard, 18, Adzikah Godsway, 23, and Wemegah Godson, 21 were arrested in Akatsi.
This was contained in a press release signed by the Public Relations Officer of the Volta Regional Police Command, DSP Effia Tenge.
Preliminary investigations by the police show that many victims have paid various sums of money to the fraudsters with the hope of being favoured in the ongoing recruitment exercise.
Police in the Volta Region cautioned the public against such recruitment charlatans, vowing to weed them out.
“The Command wishes to state that it is not responsible for recruiting persons into the service, as such, desperate applicants should be wary of protocol allocations being offered all over the place.”
“The Ghana Police remain resolute in the pursuit of recruitment charlatans in the region and has since arrested a total of five people in the past weeks,” police added in the statement.
