Ghana Raid Shuts Down Ghana Sakawa Gang!
Over a hundred suspected internet fraudsters (Sakawa) have been arrested in one raid by the Kasoa police with intelligence from the United States Department of Homeland Security and other sources.
This Effectively Wiped Out An Entire Ghanaian Sakawa Criminal Organization
According to the police, 126 laptops, 40 mobile phones, nine passports, one pump action gun with eight live AA (Anti-Aircraft) Cartridges, and 11 wraps of Indian hemp were also retrieved from some of the suspects. This took place in June.
Kasoa Divisional Police Commanders ACP Agyemang Adjem said, Kasoa has become notorious for Sakawa operations.
He said the police, therefore, undertook the operation to eliminate internet fraudsters from the Kasoa area.
The suspects were picked up at four different locations – seven at Gomoa Nyanyano, 30 at Akweley, 31 at Adade and 33 at Obom Road.
The police commander said at each location, the suspects furnished a large room with laptops lined up on tables “like you find in an internet centre (café).”
From these rooms, he believes, people are scammed of large sums of money, “so we stormed and arrested them.”
He said some foreign nationals are involved and their respective embassies would be informed before they are processed for court.
In a related development, ACP Adjem said 20 Okada riders were also arrested at Awutu Breku for attacking police officers and also vandalized police vehicle more than a month ago.
He said opinion leaders had been asked to advise the Okada riders to submit themselves for interrogation but the suspect refused to turn compelling the police to round them up. They will also be arraigned. Four of them have already been identified as being on police wanted list, ACP Adjem noted. He said no one had the right to take the law into their own hands and vandalise police property

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
