For his vigilance, one wouldn't have thought that such a man as Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin North, could be defrauded. Two young men, one of whom is a son [whose name was given as Ampoful] of a late chief of Ketase in the Akuapem land.
Kennedy Agyapong disclosed that Ampoful and one fire service officer at Akropong connived with an elderly man and exploited him over the purchase of over 120 acreage of land, in 2008. According to the Assin North legislator, he never expected to be duped by these people, stressing that; "I couldn't imagine that."
On the Seat Show, Kennedy Agyapong shared that the gentleman managed to extort huge sums of money and six pick up trucks from him under the pretext of facilitating the purchase of the land from the old man [whom he never named]. He mentioned that Ampoful after exploiting him is nowhere to be found.
"That Ampoful made me believe him because he claimed to be an Assin. Lands that I paid for in 2008. Around that time this guy took six of my pickup trucks I bought. Today, Ampoful is nowhere to be found."
But the genesis of that story was cut short. Per Kennedy Agyapong's account of how this young man and his cohorts got to dupe him, he had to let go, issues when he realised he had been 'fooled'.
He mentioned that the old man denied having sold the land or taken any money from him in exchange for the land, before a new chief who called on him [Kennedy Agyapong] about the land.
He disclosed that Ampoful had wanted him to pay extra money for the land he had already bought, "to settle any misunderstanding from the new chief."
"This man called on me one day that there has been a new chief and that it demands I pay extra money for the lands that I've already bought. But I declined. I insisted that we prove my ownership with the man whom we bought the land from.
"To my utmost disbelief, that old man denied before the new chief that he never sold the land nor took some cash for the land," he said with pain.
Kennedy Agyapong cursed that Ampoful would surely get caught and penalised for his crime.
