In the legal tussle between Adamus Resources Limited and Nguvu Mining Limited (1st and 2nd Plaintiffs) and Allan Morrison and Israel Ackah (1st and 2nd Respondents), the Accra High Court (Commercial Division) has charged the 1st and 2nd Respondents with contempt of court proceedings.
Per the contempt charge, Mr Morrison and Mr Ackah are both to be committed to prison.
The order for the 1st and 2nd Respondents to be committed to prison for the contempt charges was given by the High Court Judge on December 22, 2023.

The Interlocutory Injunction Order by the Court sought the following:
a. The 2nd Plaintiff and its Directors are restrained from taking steps to hold any meeting for and on behalf of the 1st Plaintiff Company purporting to be registered as controller of 1st Plaintiff
b. Angela List, Joseph Owusu-Ansah and Dr Anthony Aubynn are restrained from holding themselves out as Directors of the 1st Plaintiff Company until the final determination of the suit
c. Restraining Odame Sarpong from holding himself out as Secretary of the 1st Plaintiff Company
