His plea was not taken and would reappear before the court presided by Mr Johnson Abbey on May 26, this year.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Sylvanus Dalmeida told the court that, the complainant was a teacher at Kotwi-Amanfrom, while the accused was former sub-chief of Foase.

He said in November 2018, Manu, on behalf of one Nana Agyei, a witness in the case sold four building plots of land to the complainant and collected an initial amount of GHc 20,000.00 leaving a balance of GHc 28,000.00 to be paid later.

DSP Dalmeida said in October 2019, when the complainant went to Nana Agyei to pay the balance, she was told that the accused did not give the initial amount to the owner of the land.

He said the complainant made a report to the Nkawie Police and the accused was arrested and during interrogation, he admitted to have used the money.

The prosecution said after investigations, the police charged him and brought him before the court.
