Captain Smart Faces Prosecution Over GHS25,000 Fraud Case After CID Investigation

Blessed Godsbrain Smart alias Captain Smart, the anchor of Onua TV’s breakfast show, has been charged with defrauding under false pretenses and receiving or offering a bribe to corrupt a public person by the Police Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

This comes after a police probe into an allegation of corruption in which Kwasi Amoako-Atta, the Minister of Roads and Highways, was suspected of accepting a bribe of 25,000 dollars.

Kwaku Annan made the accusation in August of last year on both Net2 TV and Oman FM.

According to sources, Captain Smart received a monetary donation of 25,000 from taxi drivers and a resident of Achimota Mile 7 on behalf of the Roads Minister in order to stop a private developer from developing reserved land in the area.

Taxi drivers in the vicinity were using the plot of land as a taxi rank.

Captain Smart was meant to hand the money over to the Minister as a token of appreciation for his assistance.

However, following a police investigation, it was discovered that the Minister was unaware of the funds and had not received them.

According to the police investigation, Captain Smart did not give the 25,000 to the Minister after extorting it from the victims.

The police are readying for prosecution.
