Self-Styled Soldier Busted At Takoradi For Intimidating Residents

A man who identifies a WOll Samuel Owusu Dartey has been arrested on basis of parading as a fake soldier.

The Western Regional Police Command made the catch when he attempted to dupe a private surveyor by name Clifford Pablo Yakah.

His cover was blown in Nkankoful in the Secondi Takoradi Metropolis when he was contracted by a family to use his military uniform and dubious means to intimidate and force the surveyor from their land.

The surveyor, Mr. Clifford Pablo Yakah who narrated the story to Connect Fm revealed that; “He came to my house one early morning dressed in military uniform with a pistol and handcuff asking me to dress up and follow him. I obeyed and followed him to the Lands Commission but I was suspicious of his behavior so I called my in-law who is in the military. He was trailed and later arrested. Checks indicate he is not a military officer so he is currently at the Kwesimintsim Police Station assisting investigations,”

He also indicated by saying that;“I’m a private surveyor working on some documents for a family. I was there one day when the family introduced the suspect to me that he was a military officer (WOII Samuel Owusu Dartey) and also works with the Intelligence Unit of the National Security. They said he will be working with me on the land document,”

While the self-styled soldier is now in the custody of the police, it has been alleged that the service’s personnel also retrieved a pistol, military uniform and a list containing names of people he had reported extorted money from on grounds of securing recruitment slots for.
