The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of defunct Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, aka NAM 1 has expressed disappointment in the Ghana Police Service over the latter’s decision to deposit the Ghc2.5 million at the Bank of Ghana.
He has served notice he will go back to the Ghana Police and retrieve his GH₵2.5 million sent to them for distribution to customers.
“The intent was not to give money to the police to distribute. We went to the police because we wanted security. The agreement with the police was to have them provide a desk where we could distribute the money,” he said in an interview on Starr FM.
“I am surprised the money has been deposited at the Bank of Ghana. I will go back to the police and ask them to give the money back to me because that was not the arrangement we had,” Nana Appiah Mensah added.
The police, on the advice of the Office of the Attorney-General, on Friday, October 20, 2023, received an amount of GH₵2.5 million from Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as Nam 1.
The Service in a statement explained that the money was deposited in the Police Exhibit account at the Bank of Ghana (BoG) for the attention of the Court.
It claimed that the money forms part of investigations into petitions received from some customers of MenzGold Ghana Company Limited and Brew Marketing Consult Limited, currently before the Accra High Court against Nana Appiah Mensah.
“We would like to state that the decision on the disbursement of the money would be determined by the court,” the statement concluded.
