Asmah also went to some churches, individuals and groups at Agona Swedru, Gomoa Aboso, Agona Asafo and Winneba to inform them about his business.

The suspect also extended his activities to a group at Moree headed by Mr Isaac Lamptey, an electrician, where over 1,000 Ghana cedis was collected from people to secure them jobs.

He said the suspect told the victims that University of Education, Winneba (UEW) had offered him 1,000 capacity hostel facility contract and wanted more workers to execute the contract.

Chief Inspector Arthur said on January 25 2015 the suspect went to Life of Salvation Church at Agona Swedru where he collected money from members to give them jobs.

He also went to the Gomoa Aboso branch of Assemblies of God Church and announced that a huge contract had been awarded him by the UEW and was looking for masons, carpenters, steal burners and artisans to work at the site, the report stated.
