Police have begun a manhunt for a 28-year-old man, who reportedly posed as a landlord, and extorted an amount of GHc 31, 000 from a potential tenant.
According to the Police, the suspect, Nana Yaw, collected the amount from the complainant on the pretense of renting him a two-bedroom apartment at Tema in February.
