Mr. Manh upon his arrival in Maryland County claimed he has live in Canada for about 25 years and upon generating finance in Canada he taught to help people in Liberia.

He named his alleged loan scheme as the Canadian Loan Organization.

“I live in Canada for years and taught to help my people back home after seeing there living conditions back home. My loan scheme is here to help you all, but you have to pay at least $40 USD and LRD $2000 for registration and insurance which afterward I will start to give the loan,”
Mahn indicated.

According to Maryland County Acting Superintendent, the suspect Manah was requested to provide documentation to his legality in operating, but to no avail, something he said leads to a launched of an investigation that led to his arrest.

“This man came and asked me for an office to run his lone sachem and I agreed provided him office space in the Administrative building and he started to work but later I got to discover that he was running a dubious lone scheme without documents, something which led to calling for the joint security in Grandkru to have him arrested and that’s why he was brought back to Maryland.

I think the Police are investigating but he has to pay all the Money he took back to the owners”. Superintendent K Hodo Clark Stated.

KMTV could not speak with the alleged person as he is currently undergoing Police investigation and is expected to be charged and forwarded to Court for proper investigation.

Investigation continues.
