A businessman standing trial over a fraudulent land transaction has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by a Kumasi Circuit Court, presided over by Mr Emmanuel Amo-Yartey.
Kwadwo Baah alias “Wofa K”, 48, had sold a building plot at Mamponteng in the Kwabre East District to Mr. Charles Kofi Nti, an engineer, for GH¢24,000.00 but trouble began when he (Nti) moved to develop it.
It was realized that the plot had been re-sold to another person.
The convict promised to return the money paid to him by Mr. Nti but reneged and a formal report was made to the police leading to his arrest.
Baah pleaded guilty to the fraudulent transaction.
Police Chief Inspector Sylvanus D’Almeida told the court that the offence was committed in year 2011. GNA
