Corporal Victor Jeremiah Gaise
Cop Arrested Over Fake Enlistment
POLICE CORPORAL Victor Jeremiah Gaise has been
arrested by the Documentation and Visa Fraud (DVF)
Unit of the Criminal Investigation Department
(CID) Headquarters to assist in an ongoing
investigation into a fake recruitment case.
Gaise, 44, until his arrest yesterday, was
stationed at the Tema Buffalo Unit.
His arrest was necessitated by an investigation
into the false enlistment of some seven recruits
who reported at the National Police Training
School in Tesano, Accra, on Saturday, September
15, 2012 with cloned admission letters.
The letters, which had cloned signature of the
director-general of human resource, was issued,
according to the victims, only after each of them
had paid an amount of GH˘2,000, fees Gaise charged
for what he termed “protocol enlistment”.
Gaise, during interrogation, admitted to
fraudulently extorting money accruing to GH˘12,000
from prospective recruits.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, the Public Affairs
Director of the Ghana Police Service, DSP Cephas
Arthur, said Cynthia Antindago, 30, Ruth Yeboah
Duodu, 25, Benedicta Obeng Tima, 26, Salomey Emefa
Glago, 24, Celestine Agbozoh, 25, Mabel Ofosu
Opokuaa, 26 and Ernestina Serwaa Agyare, 25,
reported at the training school as new recruits
but soon realized their names were not on the
master list of recruits.
A probe into how they had admission letters but
were not enlisted led to the disclosure that they
were supposedly enlisted in batches during a fake
protocol recruitment process at Tema, by Corporal
They alleged that they each paid between GH˘1,000
to GH˘2000 before being handed the letters of
admission and prospectus to report on September 15
During interrogation, the seven victims alleged
that they usually met Gaise at the Zenu School
Park or in his house for their letters.
One of such meetings, according to them, recorded
attendance of over 60 prospective recruits.
This, according to DSP Arthur, presupposed that
several other victims might be waiting fruitlessly
for their turn to be enrolled.
He stressed that there was nothing like protocol
recruitment, adding that the Police Administration
would advertise any such enlistment of vacancies
He said the Police Service had not engaged or
contracted anybody or group to recruit persons for
recruitment or employment of any kind.
He therefore warned the public to stay away from
any clandestine activities in their quest to join
the Police Service.
Corporal Gaise, if found culpable, would be
charged with the offence and prosecuted per the
laws of the country.
DSP Arthur said no police officer found meddling
in any criminal activity would be spared.

... go Back
People like these are the "bad-nuts" within the Police Service, who are bent on shaming the Service and bringing its name into disrepute. Currently, the Ghana Police Service is held in a ridiculously, low esteem in the eyes of the general public because of people like Corporal Victor Jeremiah Gaise! The authorities must do well to confiscate all the ill-gotten wealth he has acquired; anything that does not obviously commensurate with the ordinary standard of living of a Police Corporal, including the GH˘12,000 bribe he has taking from these jobseekers, who were genuinely, only looking to enlist into the Service so that they can serve their country.
Above all, the Corporal should be given a very long jail sentence, if found guilty of the charge, in order to serve as a deterrent to others who are still in the Police Service and bringing shame to it all the time by pursuing such despicable activities!
Shame on you; Corporal Victor Jeremiah Gaise! Get lost with your "aeroplane numbers"
