A Ghanaian businessman who once fought for the prosecution of a foreigner who raped a Ghanaian girl is currently embroiled in a legal battle with the same guy.

Hassan Zein, the businessman, helped find justice for a 14-year-old girl who was defiled by reporting the issue to numerous authorities.

Due to this act, Zein is now reportedly under siege by the alleged rapists and fraudsters, Mohammed Mahamoud Ibrahim and his father Mohamed Ould Ibrahim, who have an impressive rap sheet.

Popularly referred to as Amar (Abuhaidar) and Omar (Abuamar), they have allegedly tried without success to defame Mr Hassan Zein and his partners since the businessman (Mr Zein) discovered their dubious criminalities and diabolical acts.

The two have allegedly carried out numerous acts of fraud spanning multiple African countries, reaching a level of succes this U.S based Ghanaian should be proud of.

They allegedly succeeded in duping a Turkish businessman to the tune of several millions of dollars in Bamako Mali. A video to that effect captured Omar transacting in the alleged fake dollars scandal with the Turkish business mogul. In the said $1m scandal, they dealt with a Turkish businessman under false pretense; posing as the Vice President of the Republic of Mali and the son posing as the Interior Minister of Mali.

They quickly relocated to Abidjan, Accra and Lome after duping the Turkish businessman, which prompted the latter to pursue them to Accra but has failed in his attempt. And despite an arrest warrant issued against them, their alleged connections with the President of Mali and some officials in authority makes them untouchable.

The Malians who shuttle between Ghana, Togo, Cote d’Ivoire, Niger, Burkina Faso and their native land has also allegedly duped countless Arab nationals from all over the Arab World, African nationals, European nationals, American citizens and a recent alleged daring scam on the Mauritanian president.
