Ghanaian nabbed with fake Kenyan, Ugandan currency

05 July 2016, 16:31 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Police in Uganda have arrested a Ghanaian for allegedly distributing counterfeit currency.

Upon his arrest, 46-year-old Peter Woods was reportedly found with many fake Kenyan and Ugandan notes.

He was arrested following a tip from a Ugandan student, Bob Mugerwa who became suspicious of Woods and another Ugandan, Yusuf Baato after they told him that they could multiply my money.

''They made a sample. I gave then 20,000 shillings which they put in their bag and pulled out 40,000 shillings which gave me in return. They told me to convince my parents to give their money so they could multiply it,'' said Mugerwa.

The following day Woods and Batoro went to Mugerwa's home thinking that he had convinced his relatives to accept the deal. But Mugerwa's parents had tipped police and they were arrested.

The Ghanaian was carrying a bag full of counterfeit Kenyan and Ugandan currency. According to police investigations, it is the counterfeit currency which they give whoever gives them money to be multiplied  and they flee off with the genuine currency.

Criminal investigations officer dealing with the case, Nelson Okello said the two will soon be taken to court and be charged with several counts of fraud including possession of counterfeit notes.
