Selwyn Kove has however denied the charge. He has also refunded GHS5,000 out of the GHS13,750 he collected from his church member and complainant.
The Court presided over by Sedinam Balokah has admitted Kove to bail in the sum of GHC50,000 with three sureties to reappear on August 30.
Narrating the facts of the case, Chief Inspector Maxwell Lanyon said the complainant Theodora Odai, was a banker residing at Nungua while the accused resided at Adenta.
Chief Inspector Lanyo said both accused and the complainant were church members of Enlightened Christian Gathering Church, Adabraka branch founded by a Malawian.
On February 11, this year, the complainant expressed interest in the conference and a pastor of the church introduced the accused to the complainant.
In the same year, Chief Inspector Lanyo said Kove demanded and collected GHS13,750 from the complainant under the pretext of securing her a Malawian visa and plane ticket.
The prosecution said as soon as the accused collected the money, he failed to honor his promise and went into hiding.
The Prosecutor said Kove was however arrested and he pleaded through his lawyer to refund the money in a month’s time but he had since refunded GHS5,000.
