Four Police officers have been arrested for allegedly stealing GHC50,000 from some Indian nationals who were suspected be involved in some illegal activities at Osu in Accra.
The officers, from the Airport Police station, were sent to arrest the Indians who were reportedly stashing huge sums of monies in sacks at a house in Osu.
The officers are believed to have taken the monies from the suspects but refused to account for it in full when the matter was reported to their superiors, Accra-based Joy FM reported Monday.
The Indians, according to the wife of one of the officers, are business partners of Deputy Local Government Minister Baba Jamal. Mr Jamal, she claims , is involved in gold deals with the Indians.
She is alleging that the Deputy Minister is deliberately frustrating efforts to get them bailed for reasons yet unknown.
According to her, although the said money has been produced in full by the embattled officers, the police administration has still refused to grant them bail.
