Asamankese(E/R), April 26, GNA- Alexander Korankye, a 27-year-old student of the Royal Technical College at Nungua, Accra, has been remanded in police custody by the Asamankese Circuit Court for allegedly collecting 40 million cedis from a colleague and issuing him with a fake UK visa.

The plea of Korankye was not taken and would re-appear before the court on May 4.

According to the prosecution, Korankye issued Charles Oppong with the fake travelling document, which was rejected at the Kotoka International Airport.
