Diamond Appiah charged before court

Diamond Appiah, 36, and a businesswoman, has been charged before an Accra Circuit Court for fraudulent transaction of land.Diamond Appiah has pleaded not guilty to the charge and has been granted bail in the sum of GH¢300,000 with three sureties, two of whom should be public servants.

The prosecution Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Evans Kesse, informed the court, presided over by Her Honour Evelyn Asamoah yesterday that the complainant is Ayisha Modi, a Businesswoman and lives at Adjiringanor in Accra.

He added that the accused, Diamond Appiah, is also a businesswoman and stays at East Legon.

According to him, in the year 2020, the Complainant needed a plot of land to buy for a building project and discussed it with one Johnson, a Witness in this case.

He told the court that the accused, who overheard the conversation, jumped in that she has a plot of land lying at East Legon Hills and was willing to sell it to the complainant at a cheaper price.

DSP Kesse indicated that the accused demanded and collected cash in the sum of US$30,000.00 from the Complainant under the pretext of selling her one parcel of land, lying at East Legon Hills.

In respect of that Diamond took the Complainant to a land at East Legon Hills but when Ayisha later visited the land, she met one Gustav, who also claimed ownership of the same land.

Unfortunately, several attempts made by the complainant to retrieve her money from the accused person prove futile.

On the basis, the complainant made a report to the police and accused was arrested and during investigation, it was established that the accused did not have any land at that location before she swindled the complainant.

In her investigation caution statement, she admitted to the offence and she was charged with the offence and brought before this Honourable Court.
