Accused Asamoah Gyan impersonator granted bail by Ghana court
An Accra Fast Track Court has granted bail to one Felix Oduro (Kenneth Sam) who is accused of impersonating Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan on social media platform, Facebook to commit fraud.
The accused who goes by multiple names was granted a GHS 15,000 bail with three sureties – one justified – on Monday in a case presided over by Justice Abena oppong.
Oduro is alleged to have fraudulently benefited from cash and items worth an estimated £2000 from a Ghanaian lady – name withheld- based in the diaspora posing as Asamoah Gyan on Facebook.
The victim’s brother, Ahmed Salim who is the official complainant was seeking to keep the accused in custody until hearing and final determination into the case is made.
But Her Honourship Abena Oppong rejected this plea and pegged bail at GHS 15,000 with three sureties.
She also adjourned the case to September 15.
Present at the Land Court 2 premises was the brother of the Black Stars captain and his business manager and spokesman, Baffour Gyan and Samuel Anim Addo respectively who look to bring charges against the accused for impersonation.
The family and associates of Asamoah Gyan have started taking steps to bring people using the name of the Al Ain ace to fraudulently acquire wealth to book.
They have also served a stern warning to people looking to cash in on the disappearance of Gyan’s musical partner, Castro to refrain from such acts or risk being hurled before the law courts.
