Self-styled soldier arrested

The Sakumono District Police have arrested a 39-year-old self-styled soldier, Alphonse Adzato Mensah, for intimidating and harassing people around Sakumono.

Briefing the Press at his office at Sakumono on Tuesday Assistant Superintendent of Police Michael Addae, the District Crime Officer, said on January 20 he received a call from a taxi driver that someone in military uniform was harassing him for money and his driving license.

He said a patrol team arrested the suspect and a search in his house revealed a military uniform that he claimed belonged to his brother.

ASP Addae said while Mensah was in custody, a lady came to the station and identified him as having introduced himself to her in December 2011 as a soldier preparing for peace-keeping duties in Congo.

He said the suspect convinced the lady, took her to a hotel near Kantamanto in Nungua, and had an affair with her.

ASP Addae said the lady woke up the following morning to detect that Mensah had removed money from her purse and had bolted.

He said investigations into the conduct of the suspect were on-going to find out whether the uniform was stolen, acquired or belonged his brother as he claimed.
