A police source told Ghana News Agency in Sekondi that the complainant, Henry Odom, a resident of Nii Boi Town in the Greater Accra Region, lodged a report with the police about four months ago that, the suspect had deceived him to pay a cash sum of GH₵ 10,000.00 into his  account in order to purchase a Nissan Micra Saloon car for him.

According to the complainant, Wilson failed to purchase the vehicle and refused to return the money.
