Controversial award scheme organiser, Kwame Owusu Fordjour, also known as Dr. UN, has reportedly been arrested and remanded by the Asokore Mampong Magistrate Court for two weeks in police custody.
On August 28, 2020, his infamous Global Blueprint Excellence Award honoured a host of Ghanaian personalities and celebrities in Accra. That, however, was supposedly not the first time Mr. Foudjour had fraudulently used the United Nations and former UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan’s name to make the award scheme appear credible.
Sources say Dr. UN was arrested in 2018 for a similar event held in the Ashanti Region which had been cited as fake, got arrested in the process and later granted bail. But the latest incident which sparked an uproar among Ghanaians seems to have flown in the face of his bail conditions.
In his recent con, Ghanaian celebrities such as Sarkodie, D-Black, Nathaniel Attoh, Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Natalie Fort and many others were his victims.
