Teacher grabbed for forging appointment letter

A teacher at Kenyase in the Brong Ahafo region, Fosu Mensah has been arrested for duping and forging a fake appointment letter for a desperate man.

The victim, Dauda Abie Jabil who has been looking for a job for a number of years managed to pay GHc600 out of the GHc1,700 cedis Fosu Mensah demanded for a job offer at the Local Government Ministry.

Dauda Abie Jabil, who had no idea the letter was fake, was arrested by the Accra Police when he presented the appointment letter to the Ministry.

He was later released to assist the police in arresting the teacher who resides in Kenyase and offered him the fake appointment letter.

It is unclear the motive behind the teacher’s conduct but the Kenyase police confirming the incident to Adom News said the teacher has been transferred to the Local Government Police Station in Accra to assist in investigations.
