There were reports earlier that musician, Akosua Adjepong has been dragged to court for allegedly conspiring with someone to defraud a businessman in a land deal of Ghc105, 000 but moments after the reports went viral, Akosua Adjapong has come out to say that, she didn’t defraud anyone and that she’s not guilty.
The report which was made by Graphic.com.gh and subsequently published by Ghbase.com mentioned that she was taken to court on Tuesday, and charged with conspiracy to defraud a businessman. It is the case of the prosecution that Akosua Adjepong and a man identified as Frank Agyemang, aka, Killer Boss, sold a land which apparently did not belong to them to the businessman. The two have been charged with conspiracy to commit crime and fraudulent transaction of land.
In reacting to the story, Akosua Adjapong told JoyNews’s Maxwell Amoofia that she did not have any dealings with the businessman who is accusing her.
A portion of her interview with JoyNews reads;
According to her, she witnessed the first payment of ¢65,000 after which she travelled.
Akosua Adjepong said the businessman made other payments – ¢30,000 and ¢10,000 – in her absence remaining a balance of ¢60,000. “But the 60,000 he can’t pay so he will give him a car. So the car he gave my cousin was RAV4 and that one he said it was ¢100,000 so in this case my cousin will be owing him ¢40,000 so my cousin said ‘let me give you another land to replace the ¢40,000’. All of this I was not there.”
The musician added that the businessman complained later that another individual came to claim that he was the rightful owner of the land.
“So he went to the police station saying that he doesn’t want the land anymore but somebody says the land is for him,” the ‘Frema’ hit singer said.
Akosua Adjepong revealed that her cousin has returned the RAV4 to the businessman and it is left with the ¢105,000 which he was in the process of refunding.
She stressed that her cousin genuinely owns the land, insisting that he did not intend to defraud the businessman.
We gather that the next hearing for the case continues on October 24, 2017.
