Five fresh arrests have been made in connection with the police recruitment rip-off over the weekend.
They are two police officers Constable Ruth Agyiri, 27, of the Central Police Station in Koforidua who allegedly swindled a victim of Gh¢1,500, and Corporal Gideon Sarpong.
The others are a radio presenter of Silver Radio Amos Brown, 40, who according to the Director General of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service David Nenyi Ampah-Bennin, has taken various sum from over 40 persons to enlist them in the police service, Richard Harrison, 30, who lured others for over Gh¢4,200, and a pastor Paul Danso.
Ampah-Bennin said at a press briefing Thursday that a total of seven people have been arrested in an investigation being led by the Commandant of the Police College DSOP Bright Oduro.
Meanwhile, one Aisha Asumda, a 36-year-old lady, has been identified as the principal suspect behind the recruitment scam.
Hundreds of young men and women turned up last Saturday at five police training depots for enlistment into the Ghana Police Service, only to realise that their recruitment letters were fake.
