The two were arraigned before court and Andoh was discharged for being innocent of the charges leveled against him.

“Like you rightly put it, I was arrested last year with one guy for defrauding someone, something that I know nothing about it,” Andoh exclusively told Pulse Ghana.

Andoh added that he wanted to clear his name hence pursuing the matter to this far as the other gentleman, Alhassan Suleiman absconded after they were bailed.

“We were arraigned before court, I was granted bail same as the other guy. After he was granted bail, he absconded but I pursued the case in order to clear my name.

“So after the court heard my side of the story, it clearly showed I had nothing to do with it. The guy used my name to defraud the lady. So the court acquitted and discharged me.”

Andoh who also played for Sekondi Hasaacas had stints with Ukrainian side Prikarpatye and Tarsana FC from Egypt.
