Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has come under fire on Twitter for allegedly lying about paying the accommodation fee of a female student at the University of Ghana (UG), Accra.
Many fresh and continuing students at UG have been left stranded and going through a torrid time to find accommodation on the campus or in nearby hostels.
On Friday, a Twitter account, @Enyonamm1, claiming to be a UG student, tweeted that her accommodation has been dealt with thanks to Dumelo.
“Thank you @johndumelo1 for sorting my accommodation issue… God richly bless you,” the account tweeted.
Dumelo responded saying: “you are most welcome. I am working hard to resolve the issues for he rest of your friends.#idey4u.
John Dumelo is and will be the biggest fraud in Ghana politics.

“I can now go and rest… Am just so happy…#UG. This accommodation issue is just something else,” the @Enyonamm1 tweeted back.
The @Enyonamm1 account appears to be fake, purposeful created to comment on the UG accommodation crisis and polish the image of Dumelo.
A Twitter user, @kafzz_z, replied to Dumelo, telling him that the account was fake and that his cousin’s photo is being used to perpetuate the ‘fraud.’
“Mr.Dumelo please this account is a fake and it’s being used to tarnish my cousins image. I don’t know anything about this accomation issue but please just note that this account is a fake. Thank you,” @Kafzz_z said.
Below are some tweets calling out the actor.

Are they casting Princess Tyra part 4? This looks like a scripted movie by Frank Raja Arasi and has featured Dumelo as the Prince who is about to marry "CATFISH" Enyonam. 😂 https://t.co/Kcf9eF3pMt
