Man, 42, Busted With 656 ATM Cards
The National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) has busted a 42-year-old man with 656 ATM cards connected to nine banks operating in Ghana and Nigeria.
Bachir Musa Aminou, who claims to be a Nigerian but holds a Nigerien passport, concealed the cards in a black plastic bag containing kola nuts bound for Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
He was busted at the Kotoka International Airport on September 12, when he was going through departure formalities en route to Dubai.
He arrived in the country on August 20, this year on transit to Dubai.
The suspect first arrived in Ghana on April 29, 2020 and left for Dubai on May 26, 2020 through Ethiopia.
The ATM cards are connected to a local bank and eight other banks in the country with Nigerian origin.
Aminou claimed, during interrogation, that 132 of the cards were his, and that he collected them from his extended family for his business.
