Self-acclaimed Global Ambassador for the United Nations (UN), Kwame Fordjour, popularly known as ‘Dr. UN’ has been arrested.
He was arrested on the premises of Kumasi based Hello-FM by National Security operatives. 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.
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.
Under the pretence of partnering with the United Nations and the respected legacy of the late Dr Kofi Annan, he contrived to organize an awards ceremony (succeeded quite brilliantly) and presented trophies and citations to over 20 accomplished Ghanaian personalities who he described as having achieved extraordinary feats in their endeavours.
He thus surpassed his own feat as one of the biggest frauds in the country’s history. 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 in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.
He was arrested after it was reported that the award scheme which was held in 2018 was fake and was later granted bail.
The court subsequently issued an arrest warrant after he flouted his bail conditions.In view of this when news went out that Kwame Fordjour was in the studios of Hello FM, National Security operatives stormed the place to effect his arrest.According to Samson Nyamkeye, ‘Dr UN’ has been remanded for 14 days
