He was caught by stup!d!ty – Inusah Fuseini reacts to son’s sentence in US for fraud

Former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini has opened up about the sentencing of his son, Abdul Inusah by a US court on charges of fraud.

Speaking in an interview with Umaru Sanda on Citi TV’s Face to Face programme (July 18), the former MP said he finds it difficult discussing the issue as a father who had brought up his son in a good way.

According to him, the circumstance around the issue makes him believe that Abdul was caught up in stupidity by seeking to enter into a business while schooling in the US.

“Well, it is a difficult thing, it is difficult. I mean you train your child, bring up your child to be a useful and responsible person. You sit down with him at night and in the day to talk about what decent life is, you try to infuse in him what hard work can do but we are of different generations.

“It is difficult to talk about him because deep inside me, deep inside me I think he was just caught by stupidity and nothing or some level of invincibility. As a student he had his document so he decided to register a company. I never sanctioned that, I believe that if you are sent to school to learn you must concentrate on your studies and I told him that. Now that obviously as a young man he thought he could make quick bucks so he registered a company and he was actually buying cars for people. I know many people in Ghana that he bought cars for. In this particular case, he bought a car for some guys from Nigeria who were fellow students, colleague students and it turned out that the money used to buy the car was obtained fraudulently and that was his offense,” he said.

The 32-year-old Abdul Inusah was sentenced to a two-year jail term after having been found guilty for his role in a Huntington-based scheme that defrauded individuals in multiple states through the use of false online personas.

According to YouTuber Hello Frank, who broke the news on Saturday, July 8, 2023, Inusah was also ordered to pay $128,000 in restitution.

The details, culled from a statement from the US Attorney’s Office Southern District of West Virginia, said that the trial was decided by a federal jury after three days in court.

The statement from the United State’s Attorney, dated Thursday, March 23, 2023, added that Abdul Inusah was found guilty for being part of a “conspiracy that targeted victims using false personas via email, text messaging, online dating websites and social media platforms.

But according to his father, he can still vouch for his son’s innocence.

“I support my son 110%, I know him. I know Abdul Hamid, I know he can be boisterous but I don’t know him to be somebody who will be interested in other people’s things,” he stated.

The former minister of environment science and technology who is also a private legal practitioner revealed that his son has since commenced an appeal of his sentence.
