The Police Criminal Investigations Department says it has no case lodged against chief executive of Menzgold Ghana, Nana Appiah Mensah, who is said to have fled Ghana in the midst of the firm’s crisis that is likely to cost thousands of customers their investment.
On the back of series of demonstrations to put pressure on government to intervene in the crisis, private legal practitioner Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko on Tuesday claimed Mr. Appiah Mensah was arrested but absconded.
“I understand the owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, has breached his bail condition and absconded,” he said in a Facebook post but did not give further details as to when he was arrested and by who and how he was able to escape.
When contacted to establish the veracity of the claim by Mr. Otchere-Darko, Director of the Police CID, DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, said as far as the Police were concerned, they have “never arrested or invited” Nana Appiah Mensah popularly known as NAM 1.
She said there is no complaint at the Police Headquarters as at Wednesday, January 9, 2019.
However, she told 3news.com that she is aware the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is investigating Mr. Apppiah Mensah who is said to be hiding in South Africa due to agitation by customers of his Menzgold who have been demanding for their investments.
