Fake Hitz FM presenter arrested

A young man who has been posing as DJ Awana of Hitz FM and defrauding people has been arrested by the Dansoman police.
The imposter wrote DJ Awana’s official name, George Tetteh, on the back of the Hitz FM branded T-shirt he was wearing at the time of his arrest. He made representations to teachers of the Avemaria School Complex in Dansoman that he worked with the station.

His modus operandi was to take advantage of the school’s double entrance to defraud taxi drivers whose services he engaged. Every time he needed the services of a taxi driver, he would just engage one and when he was done, he would ask the driver to wait for him at the entrance of the school. Whilst the driver waited, he would pass the other gate at the opposite end of the school and exit the premises leaving his victims waiting till eternity.
Luck, however, eluded him Monday afternoon when the school’s security official having been alerted by a taxi driver, one of his victims, stopped, questioned the fraudster and subsequently arrested him.

According to a teacher of the school, last Friday ‘George’ went to the school’s administration with the intention of securing admission for his child but was told that the administrator was not available and was therefore asked to come Monday.

Surprisingly George came to the school last Saturday to make the same inquiries which made the teachers suspicious but they simply asked him to come Monday.

The teacher said a few minutes after ‘George’ had left a taxi driver came looking for him but when a search was conducted it was established he had used the other exit to escape.

He engaged the services of the taxi driver for the whole day and according to the said driver the imposter collected Ghc 50.00 from him and assured him to add it to his debts which will be paid after the rounds.

Monday morning the same teacher saw George entering the school’s premises in a swift movement and was heading to the other exit point. The teacher quickly signaled the security man at the gate to stop him.

When he was questioned he said he works with Hitz FM and wanted admission for his child who will be brought from Kumasi.

Subsequently he was dragged to the school mother’s office for interrogation. While at it, another taxi driver came to demand payment for services he had rendered.

The suspect had told the teachers earlier that he was an employee of Hitz FM and that a taxi driver he brought the previous day had absconded with his laptop, tablet and GHC 1,000,00.

When he was interrogated further he admitted he was not a staff of Hitz FM but had worked with the station for three months as a driver.
He was then taken to the Dansoman police station.
