Oguaa Ghana Telecom rewards informants

Cape Coast, Feb. 29, GNA - Mr. Samuel Fiakye-Amporful, Ghana Telecom (GT) Area Manager for Cape Coast and Elmina, on Friday presented a cash of GH¢1,000 to six car washing attendants in Cape Coast for causing the arrest of a cable thief at Mepeasem near Cape Coast. Mr Fiakye-Amporful said the presentation formed part of a scheme that awards GH¢1000 to persons who would help arrest cable thieves and GH¢500 to informants whose tip-offs would lead to the arrest of cable thieves.

He said the reward scheme is to help reduce the GH¢460,000 loss made by his outfit in 2006 as a result of cable theft throughout the country. Mr Fiakye-Amporful said last year Ghana Telecom gave a reward of GH¢30,000 to people who aided in the arrest of cable thieves. Alhaji "Ship Engine", director of Ship Engine Enterprise and Car Washing enterprise who received the cash reward on behalf of his car washing attendants, Joseph Antwi, David Wanwona, Kwabena Sam, George Nyame, Kobina Baah and Ekow Sam, said the reward would motivate them and the public to be on the look out for cable thieves in the region.
