Ayitey Powers Put Behind Bars For Duping Former Hearts Player Addo

Controversial boxer Michael Okine known in public circles as Ayitey Powers has been arrested and put behind bars for defrauding former Hearts of Oak player Eugene Addo, Ghana Sports Online can authoritatively report.



The 37-year-old is languishing in police cell at the James Town Police Station.

The Cruiserweight boxer has been charged with defrauding three persons including a former Hearts of Oak player and is set to be arraigned before court.

He was refused bail by the police.

Ghana Sports Online understands the victims tried to retrieve their money roundly worth $8,000 from the boxer but were unsuccessful.

The Greater Accra Police Command arrested Powers on Friday upon report by the victims and would prepare him for court on Monday.

He could be remanded into prison custody.

In July 2014, he was reported to have also defrauded two residents of Kumasi to the tune of $3,500 under the guise of securing them travel documents to Australia.
