Eastern Region: Fetish priest jailed 15 years for fraud

Richard Vormowor alias Nana Buame will serve his jail term with hard labour after he was convicted on his own plea

A 43-year-old fetish priest has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by a Koforidua circuit court for defrauding people with counterfeit currency.

Richard Vormowor has been on the police wanted list for various cases of money doubling scam.

The prosecutor, Chief Inspector Solomon Keelson said, they have been receiving numerous complaints of money doubling fraud against the convict.

He was arrested at a checkpoint with seven bundles of GHC20 notes and two bundles of GHC10 notes.

During interrogation, the police said, he admitted that the monies were fake.

Vormowor pleaded guilty in court and was subsequently slapped with a 15-year jail term.
