The Ghana Police Service have finally apprehended a suspect, William Djedehard Anselme Boscaud Dieou, for stealing an amount of GH¢110 million from Cal Bank.
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that the suspect, using the name William Kurt Mensah, opened a bank account with a National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) card.
He then remotely logged into Cal Bank’s system using the credentials of two employees of the bank.
Dieou then credited his fake account with monies retrieved from the Cal Bank after remotely logging into their system.
Police investigations further revealed that an amount of GH¢84,991.06 was withdrawn through the use of ATM, while another amount of GH¢170,000 was transferred to six other bank accounts via GHIPSS Instant Transfer Online.
He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges of conspiracy to commit crime and stealing. His accomplice, Wonder Kofi Klutse Fianu, is said to be at large.
The police have however previously arrested 12 other suspects connected to the crime.
The court presided over by Mrs Harriet Jane Akweley Quaye has remanded Dieou into Police custody to assist in investigations.
This follows submissions by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) George Amega praying the court to remand Dieou into custody to enable him to assist in Police investigations.
The accused person is expected to reappear on August 30.
