Prince Tagoe, a former Ghana Blackstars player, has been remanded into police detention after being accused of scamming George Boateng, Black Stars assistant coach, of $40,000.
According to reports, the 36-year-old was remanded until January 4, 2023, by an Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday.
The former Hearts of Oak player pleaded not guilty to the charge of defrauding by false pretence to the court presided over by His Honour Samuel Bright Acquah.
Prince Tagoe offered to import the 4×4 Lexus for $40,000 in the case brief that the prosecutor, George Boateng, submitted to the court.
Tagoe was given the aforementioned sum by George Boateng on January 8, 2021, and he confirmed receiving it over the phone.
He didn’t keep his word, so he contacted Boateng and begged for an extra two weeks to do the task, but he never did.
During the course of the investigations, Tagoe admitted culpability for defrauding Boateng of $40,000 and begged for two weeks for the money, but he never followed through on the commitment. As a result, he was accused and prosecuted.
