‘Evangelist’ In Court For Swindling Fiancée of GH¢165,000


A self-styled evangelist is facing the law for allegedly swindling his fiancée of GH¢165,000.

The accused, Solomon Yidana, was on Monday put before a Kumasi Circuit Court, presided over by Mr Ekow Mensah, to answer a charge of defrauding by false pretence.

He, however, pleaded not guilty and was granted bail in the sum of GH¢165,000 with three sureties.

Yidana would be making his next appearance on Monday, July 24.

Police Inspector Eric Asante said the complainant, Bernice Kennedy, runs her own business in the gold mining town of Obuasi and is the fiancée of the accused.

In September, last year, the woman told Yidana of her decision to buy a Mercedes Benz GL450 vehicle, and he convinced her that he could get that for her from a car dealer in Togo.

Left with no option, she made a formal report to the police on June 26, and he was arrested.
