In view of the barrages of unsubstantiated allegations being bandied about by a Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong, against ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, it has become imperative that we take a trip down memory lane to reveal how, in September 2009, Anas reported on the activities of the shady character the Assin Central MP is parading as his star witness.
$ 5.7mil Gold Scam
HAFIX’S SWISS BANK ACCOUNT EXPOSED
…He stashed part of booty into it
By Anas Aremeyaw Anas
The end time seems to be beckoning for Mohammed Hafix Abdullah, the Chief Executive of Hafred Security and Tarchouse Production in his attempted 5.7 million dollar gold scam.
The New Crusading GUIDE investigations can confirm that he has secretly stashed some of the scam money into a Switzerland Account in Geneva.
The bank from our investigations is called Clariden Leu, Switzerland Geneva; his banker is called Joseph Younes, accounts holder portion reads: Mohammed Hafix Abdullah. The account, our international investigator said, was opened as far back as 12th August, 2008.
The New Crusading GUIDE investigative team has some documentation of interesting inflows and outflows in and out of the account.
Our checks from the records indicate that the account has seen a lot of activities with transfers and withdrawals made left, right, and centre within the last few months. Mohammed Hafix must be cursing his stars for attempting to defraud Omega Strategic Services as our investigation into that case is leading to another 3million dollar scam with Chinese connections of which Mohammed Hafix was neck-deep. Details of that will be published soon.
When he got a part of the gold money, Mohammed Hafix organized an all –expense- paid trip concert dubbed, ‘Beacon of Peace’ where he brought together chiefs from Northern Region, flanked by beautiful girls to celebrate in a grand occasion at the National Theatre. He was also very generous with the money as he sprinkled part on NGO’s and on a beauty peagent.
Hafix who drives a custom numbered BMW Tuareg was nabbed by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police and Omega Strategic Services when he tried to play tricks on them.
The New Crusading GUIDE is privy to information that the Chief Executive of Hafred Security boasted that he owns the Ghana Police Service and that no one can prosecute him in Ghana. Hafix also trumpeted his links with the Ex. Vice President, Aliu Mahama in order to help his scam work. He also told his investors that the law doesn’t work in Ghana and that money was what spoke in the justice delivery system of Ghana.
The Police were very swift in dealing with Mohammed Hafix in a very dramatic raid at his house off the Spintex Road one Tuesday evening. He threatened to gun down the police as well as this reporter using his British Army experience as a reason.
A team of local and international investigators including this paper have already tracked down all the assets of Hafix, what he did with the money? Who are his local fraudulent partners and how much he transferred to these fraudsters?
The New Crusading GUIDE has video-tape evidence of Hafix’s fraudulent compatriots who have confessed to be involved in the fraudulent scam and are now begging for forgiveness.
However, the case has been transferred from a Circuit Court in Accra to the High Court on the instructions of the Chief Justice of Ghana. More drama is yet to unfold as the international investigators have now finished their work. The Ghana story of intrigue and shock of who got what in the cash distribution is about to be told. Please read the following on how Mohammed Hafix threatened to shoot this reporter and some senior police officers when he was about to be busted.
THE SHOWDOWN AT HAFIX’s HOUSE:
It was all drama when a combined force of personnel of the Ghana Police CID, as well as the patrol team from the Ghana Police, surrounded the house of the King of Fraud. When the policemen announced their presence, the security man insisted they identify themselves. After the identification, the old-looking security guard told the police that Hafiz Mohammed was not in, though his sleek BMW Tuareg which he bought a few days before was parked in the house.
When the heat became unbearable for the security man, he quickly ran and told his master. Then came the thick, tall Hafiz from bed, wearing cloth at his waist. As soon as he was out, he started screaming, “Who are you? If any of you enter this house, I will shoot the bloody hell out of you, and I mean it, because I am from the British Army, people like me hate nonsense and have no mercy for the crippled.” At this stage, the Police were only watching him as he kept on bragging. When he stopped, the Police told him that they were from the Police CID Headquarters, and they wanted him at their office.
Hafiz shouted on top of his voice, saying, “All of you show me your ID cards, throw it into the house.” Then our New Weekend Crusading Guide reporter, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, who was part of the operation, raised his head to look at him, and Hafiz shouted, “If you make any attempt to enter this house, I will kill you like a fowl, and I am prepared to die and to save myself from you armed robbers,” though he could clearly hear the sound of the police sirens.
The Police still begged him to come out and listen to their story, and he still rebuffed the Police. This time around, he shouted that he had called the Military to come and kill anybody in his house. This made the Police believe that he was clearly bragging even when the law had caught up with him.
The King of Fraud now said he wouldn’t come out of that house and ordered the Police to leave. The Police, however, decided to wait for him. He kept them waiting from midnight until the next morning. When the Police decided to forcibly enter his house, he switched on his light and surrounded himself. He was then whisked into his customized BMW Tuareg and driven straight to the Police Headquarters. Stay tuned.
