Sekondi, March 14, GNA- A Sekondi District Magistrate's Court on Monday sentenced Nana Yaw Wiredu, a self-styled security officer, to 15 months imprisonment in hard labour for defrauding. He pleaded guilty.

Prosecuting, Police Sergeant Philip Obeng said the accused introduced himself to Mark Yalley, a farmer at Kejebil, as a security officer. Sergeant Obeng said the accused asked Yalley to give him 20,000 cedis for him to arrange his enlistment into the Ghana Army.
