3 Thieves Grabbed …For Diverting Assorted Poultry Feed Valued At GH¢425,500

Three persons alleged to belong to goods diversion syndicate have been arrested by the police.

It was discovered that the three persons who are strong members of a syndicate which diverts goods of customers and sell them, have on several occasions diverted goods belonging to importers making them lose billions of Cedis.

The three accused persons Daniel Cofie Micko, a 46-year-old transporter, Michael Vondey, a 48-year-old mechanic and Hamza Isaka, a 56-year-old driver, have been arranged before Court and charged with conspiracy to commit crime and selling.

The three accused persons are said to have stolen 490 bags of assorted poultry feed valued at GH¢425,500.


They however, denied the offences and the Court presided over by Mrs Sedinam Awo Balokah granted them to bail in the sum of GH¢500,000 with four sureties each. Each surety is to be justified.

The Court further ordered the accused persons to report to the police every Wednesday until investigations are over and the matter is dealt with at the Court.

The matter has been adjourned to March 9, 2023.

It would be recalled that the Police Intelligence and Professional Standards (PIPs) Bureau was investigating a case involving some police personnel from the Kumasi Central Police Command who have allegedly scheme with some fraudsters to divert a truck load of frytol cooking oil and sold the goods to their standby customers.

It was then alleged that the two police personnel at the Kumasi Central Police command have jointly collected an amount of GH¢ 50,000.00 from suspects who have diverted goods worth GH¢ 270,000.00 and allowed them to have their way.

In that incident, a Transporter with Frytol Ghana (Woemma Africa), headed by Bismark Atta Hanson was introduced to a DAF truck with registration number AS 7377-10 which he could use in transporting goods from one destination to the other.

According to Bismark Atta Hanson, unknown to him the said truck is a “diversion truck” which is being used to divert and steal peoples’ goods.

He explained that the truck which belongs to one Janet, was however used in April 2017, to load frytol cooking oil valued at GHC270,000 from Sefwi Dwenase in the Western Region and after six days, he heard nothing of the truck.

The truck according to him failed to reach the destination for which it was prepared for after six days with the driver giving the excuse in telephone conversation that, the truck had developed some fault which led to their delay.

Irrespective of the fact that the waybill and documents covering the goods indicated the destination of the goods, and contact of the transporter, the two policemen after taking the GH¢ 50,000.00 failed to alert the owner of the goods.

This paper has gathered that that has been the modus operandi of these suspects who steal people’s goods and sell them to their clients who are on alert for the delivery of any such goods to them.
