By on

Its all happened today, Wednesday, September 13, 2017 in the afternoon when a petty trader by name Mena Ekua, 37 went to the vendor in question, Emmanuel Dadzie who is in his 30s at Nkotompo and asked him to transfer 2000 cedis each to three different contacts, a request the vendor quickly obliged.

It was when the vendor demanded his money from the lady that she told the vendor that the person he transferred the money to called her and introduced himself as Manager of MTN and that, she the lady had won a raffle so she should go and make that transaction after which the vendor would give the prize to her.

The vendor collapsed immediately upon hearing this explanation from the woman.

He was rushed to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.
