According to reports, Private Asare Boateng allegedly forced Baba Musah to give him the bag containing the money before escaping in a Mitsubishi Pajaro with the license plate AC- 8957-20.
When Samuel Arthur Junior learned what had transpired, he boarded a taxi to give the automobile a furious pursuit. Samuel Arthur Junior had instructed Baba Musah and Samuel Fyreson to deposit the money in his account with the GCB Bank in Elmina.
Fortunately for him, he followed the automobile and discovered it at Takoradi, where he quickly requested help from the Military Police.
After a heated chase through Takoradi township, the offender was apprehended by Sergeant Soalihu and two other Military Police. At Paa Grant Roundabout, he was ultimately taken into custody.
The suspect was told to travel to the Military Police station, where he admitted to working at the Senior Minister’s office at Jubilee House.
