According to the prosecution, the crime was detected when a customer reported at the bank to withdraw an amount of GHC1,900 out of GHC3,000, which she had in her accounts.

To the surprise of the customer, she was told her balance didn’t reflect the amount she wanted to withdraw. This led her to lodge a complaint with the manager of the branch.

Chief Inspector James Obeng told the court that, the suspect, who did not report to work on that day, was contacted by the Manager and sensing danger, the accused in response, quickly sent GHc1,900 to the customer, through her mobile money wallet.
