A 35-year old electrician, who posed as an official of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) and succeeded in duping five people of cash of GHȼ1,650.00 has been sentenced to 24 months imprisonment by the Asamankese Magistrate Court.

Ofosu Agyei was additionally ordered to pay back the money collected from the victims under the pretext of supplying them with electricity meters.

He was charged with defrauding by false pretence and pleaded guilty.

Police Chief Inspector Samuel Tetteh told the court presided over by Mr. Charles Wiafe that the crime was committed at Oseanase near Asamankese.

The convict had introduced himself to the victims, who were looking for electricity meters, as a worker of the ECG and convinced them that he could get these electrically powered devices for them.

They fell for the bait and paid to him various amounts of money totaling GHȼ1,650.00.

The victims reported the matter to the Asamankese Office of the Company after attempts to get him to deliver on his promise had failed, leading to his arrest.
