Four Women Arrested For Dealing In Fake Tickets

court_hammerFour women were arrested at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi last Saturday for allegedly selling fake tickets for the Ghana-Mali World Cup qualifier. Police gave their names as Akua Adusei, 28, seamstress, Margaret Appiah, 27, trader, Charity Ababio, 23, hairdresser, and Christiana Manu, 26, seamstress.

Nine fake booklets containing tickets, some of which had already been sold out, were found with them. Also found on them was cash of GH¢385, being proceeds realised from the sale of the fake tickets.

Chief Inspector Yusif Mohammed Tanko, the Ashanti Regional Police Public Relations Officer, told the Daily Graphic yesterday that two friends went to the stadium last Saturday to purchase advance tickets for yesterday’s match.

Because they wanted to sit close to one another the two friends demanded tickets with close serial numbers. However, after buying the tickets, they realised that the tickets had the same serial numbers.

The police were informed and the four women were arrested. Upon interrogation, they said the one Regina Asmah who was in charge of the sale of advance tickets for the match engaged them. However, the fake tickets were given to them by another person (name withheld) to sell. Chief inspector Tanko said police were looking for the alleged source of the fake tickets. The four suspects are in police custody pending further investigations.
