The self acclaimed Global Ambassador for the United Nations (UN), Kwame Fordjour, popularly known as ‘Dr. UN’ has finally been arrested at the studios of “HelloFM”.
He was arrested on the premises of Kumasi based Hello-FM by plain-clothed police personnel from Asokore-Mampong, when Mr. Fordjour was around.
Last month, ‘Dr UN’ described as one of the greatest conmen in the annals of the country’s entertainment history, trended for all the wrong reasons you could think of in the country and also walking freely as he thought he deems.
A ‘diplomat’ and ‘global ambassador’ by self-description, with a doctorate degree that has its veracity as questionable as his personality, Fordjour accomplished a scam on a magnitude almost never experienced in the country.
Mr. Fordjour scammed quite a number of Ghanaian personalities, presenting a trophy and a citation of their hard work and achievement in the country and beyond. He presented this to over 20 personalities in the country including Berla Mundi, Sarkodie, D-Black among a host of many others.
According to a report filed by PeaceFM‘s correspondent and HelloFM‘s General Manager, Samson K. Nyamekye, ‘Dr. UN’ has been on the radar of the security agencies for quite some time now, after a fake award ceremony he organized at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
He has had an issue with the court not long ago. It was reported that the award scheme held in 2018 was fake and subsequently tried by a Magistrate Court in Asokore-Mampong.
The court, presided over by Her Worship, Portia M.A. Salia, later granted him bail after a long hasty judgment. But after flouting his bail conditions, the court issued a warrant for his arrest again.
Due to this, when news went out that Kwame Fordjour was in the studios of Hello FM, the security agencies stormed the place and later whisked him away in an unmarked saloon car that they came with and conveyed him away.
According to Mr.Samson Nyamkeye, PeaceFM‘s correspondent and HelloFM‘s General Manager, he said ‘Dr UN’ has been remanded in police custody.
