The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, has stated that he will go back to the Ghana Police and retrieve his GH₵2.5 million sent to them for distribution to customers.
According to him, the police service was not supposed to deposit the money to the Bank of Ghana.
“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.
In a statement on Tuesday, October 24, the Police administration indicated that the said amount has been deposited in the Police Exhibit account at the Bank of Ghana (BoG) for the attention of the Court.
According to the Police, the amount is 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.
It remains to be seen whether the police will heed Nana Appiah Mensah’s request and return the money to him.
