According to Accra-based radio station Starr FM, former Ghana international Prince Tagoe was remanded into police jail until January 4, 2023, for cheating Black Stars assistant coach George Boateng of $40,000 by an Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday.

To the court presided over by His Honour Samuel Bright Acquah, the former Hearts of Oak player pled not guilty to the charge of defrauding the former Netherlands midfielder by false pretence.

According to the prosecutor’s case brief, George Boateng stated that he intended to acquire a 4×4 Lexus, and Prince Tagoe offered to import the automobile for $40,000.

On January 8, 2021, George Boateng paid the aforementioned sum to Prince Tagoe, who acknowledged receipt over the phone.

Tagoe agreed to deliver the car by the end of March, but he failed to do so. He then contacted Boateng to request an extension of two weeks to deliver the obligation, but he never did so again.

Boateng traveled to Ghana on April 27 to pick up the vehicle, but it has yet to be delivered. Tagoe informed Boateng that he couldn’t keep his pledge because he needed the money to deal with an urgent personal matter.

During the inquiry, Tagoe acknowledged guilt of robbing Boateng of $40,000 and asked for two weeks to pay the money, but never followed through. As a result, he was charged and presented in court.
