US Group Boss Arrested


Scores of people who claimed to have been swindled by Chief Medicine.

Godfred Chief Medicinie, owner of US Group of Company’s Tilapia Investment Module, was arrested in Accra on Thursday following a bench warrant issued by a high court in Kumasi.

He is alleged to have duped hundreds of people across the country. He was

said to have promised unsuspecting individuals that they would get 100

percent of any amount of money that they would invest in his tilapia investment module.

The suspect reportedly went missing in 2012 after several people had invested in his business.

Scores of people, who were allegedly swindled by Godfred Chief Medicinie,

yesterday rushed to the High Court Two in Kumasi to demand their monies

from the suspect.
About 90 people in Kumasi alone had filed to the court to order the suspect to pay their monies which he had promised to put into his business with expected 100 percent dividend accruing within three months.

Chief Medicinie was taken to court Friday morning. His arrest and eventual arraignment in court had spread like wild fire in the Kumasi Metropolis, attracting a colossal number of people to the court.

Curses
Most of the victims looked morose as they stood right in front of the court building.

Others, who claimed to have also been swindled by Chief Medicinie, were heard cursing the suspect, with some of them threatening to use their might to retrieve their money from the man.

Demand
The irate victims had prayed the High Court Two, presided over by Justice Jacob Boon, to order the suspect to pay their monies with interest, as he promised them before they invested in his business.

According to the complainants, the suspect owes them a staggering GH¢740,000.

Court
The court granted him bail in the sum of GH¢50,000 with two sureties.

The suspect was ordered to deposit documents of two buildings to the registrar of the court as part of the bail conditions.

Chief Medicinie is expected to file his response to the suit filed by the complainants.
