An Accra Circuit Court on Thursday granted bail in the sum of GH¢40,000.00 with three sureties to two persons for allegedly stealing GH¢50,000.00 from the GN Insurance Company Limited, a subsidiary of the Nduom Group of Companies.
Noah Shaibu Alawiye 35, a Company Inspector with Registrar General’s Department, and Obuoba Kisseh 36, businessman, have been charged with conspiracy to commit crime to wit forging of official document and stealing.
Alawiye was in addition charged with possessing forged documents.
They have since denied the various charges and the case has been adjourned to October 2.
Superintendent of Police Alexander Odonkor told the Court presided over by Madam Marian Affoh that the Prosecution Witness is George Asamoah Tetteh, the Head of Finance and Administration at the Registrar General’s Department in Accra.
Kisseh is a former National Youth Employment Person who served at the Registrar General’s Department.
On August 24, 2017, GN Insurance applied to the Department to increase their stated capital from GH¢100,000.00 to GH¢20,000,000.00 and as a requirement, they were to pay GH¢100, 470.00 as stamp duties before the changes could be effected.
He said the next day, the amount of GH¢100, 470.00 was released to Tahiru Fuseini a staff of Group Nduom to pay for the stamp duties and he obliged.
In the course of the payment, Fuseini received a call to attend to an emergency at Adenta, a suburb of Accra, thus, handed over the money and documents to Kisseh to complete the process on his behalf.
Kisseh also contacted Alawiye to assist him and they made photocopies of the forms, altered the original document and paid GH¢50,470.00 instead of the GH¢100,470.00 as the stamp duties to the Fidelity Bank at the Department and issued with a receipt number 1191635.
The Prosecution said Kisseh later submitted a photocopy of a forged receipt number 0959132, indicating a payment of GH¢100, 470.00 to Fuseini.
Alawiye, who was not authorised to work on such transactions presented a new set of forms with same details, but a stated capital of GH¢20,000,000.00 which he attached to the receipt-0959132 with the face value of GH¢100,470.00 to the Bank for validation, explaining that he misplaced the earlier forms.
Superintendent Odonkor said the Bank Official noticed that they had not received such an amount and became suspicious.
Alawiye snatched it from her and he later changed the figures with a correction fluid and re-presented it for receipt but the Bank sent it to the Prosecution Witness and a report was made to the Police.
On August 30, 2017, Alawiye was arrested and the GH¢50,000.00 together with the receipt were retrieved from him whereas Kisseh went into hiding on hearing of the arrest, but he was grabbed on February 03, 2018.
He told the Police that Alawiye provided the receipts and altered the forms.
Superintendent Odonkor revealed that the amount recovered had been refunded to Group Nduom.
