The Hohoe Police Command has arrested the prophetess of the Yesu Apam Mogya Prayer Camp for allegedly defrauding a provision shop owner in Hohoe in the Volta Region.

According to The Mirror newspaper the victim who reported the case to the police is not the first to be swindled by the prophetess.

Her style of defrauding is to buy huge sums of items from provision shop owners and subsequently abscond without paying for the items.
