Director of Cybercrime Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service, Dr Gustav Yankson has sent a strong warning to television stations operators to stop promoting swindlers in their channels.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh has launched a war the activities of swindlers in the country, hence the CID is working diligently to ensure that such persons desist from it.
”The IGP and the Director-General of CID have both expressed worry over the activities of swindlers on TV. So we directed our cyber unit to take action. We arrested two managers of two different stations. We are using the two to serve caution to other stations to desist from the activities. From today, we will come after the other TV stations. After the TV stations, we will go after those swindlers involved then the victims will also follow,” he said.
The Cyber Crime Unit of the Ghana Police Service last week arrested the General Managers of Accra-based free-to-air television stations, AB TV and Amen TV, for promoting the activities of swindlers on their channels.
