Former Ghana striker Prince Tagoe remanded into lawful custody for allegedly defrauding assistant Black Stars coach George Boateng

Posted by

A Circuit Court in Accra presided over by His Honour, Mr Samuel Bright Acquah has remanded Ghanaian international Prince Tagoe into lawful custody until January 4, 2023 for fraud.

Prince Tagoe pleaded not guilty to the charge of defrauding by false pretense of Black Stars Assistant Coach, George Antwi Boateng to the sum of $40,000.

According to Star FM, Prince Tagoe who was part of the team that represented Ghana at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was dragged to court after he failed to import a 4X4 Lexus vehicle belonging to George Boateng.

The two parties had agreed on an amount of $40.000.00 USD equivalent to (GHc265,200) for the car to be imported.

On January 8, 2021, George Boateng paid the agreed amount to a First Atlantic Bank Account No. 0016531332032, which Prince Tagoe through a phone call confirmed had hit his account.

Nevertheless, Prince Tagoe failed to fulfill his end of the bargain. Numerous attempts by George Boateng to get the former Hearts of Oak forward to fulfill his part of the agreement were inefficacious.

George Boateng reported the matter to the police and Prince Tagoe was subsequently arrested and dragged to court, where he’s charged of defrauding by false pretense.

The two parties will once again meet in court on Wednesday, January 4, 2023, when the case is expected to be resolved.
