Some six customers of embattled gold dealership firm, Menzgold, were picked up by the East Legon Police on December 7, 2018, for attempting to lock up an office of an affiliate company, Zylofon Arts.
The customers reportedly stormed the Zylofon Arts Fund office to demand payment of their principal investment from the troubled gold dealership firm.
Their aggravated behaviour and a tendency to be violent led to the police around the office to cause the arrest.
Management of Menzgold this week, asked staff to proceed on leave over what it described as threats on its staff, a decision some customers suspect was a ploy to halt payment of their principal investments.
According to a Joy News report sighted by YEN.com.gh, an eyewitness told reporter Nancy Emefa Dzradosi that the customers besieged the premises of the company and wanted to enter.
According to her, there were some policemen who appealed to customers to leave but they declined.
Later, there was police reinforcement which led to the arrest of the customers.
One of the customers who was arrested said they had no intentions of destroying property at the Zylofon Arts office.
According to him, they were there to peacefully register their protest and to draw the attention of Blakk Rasta a presenter with a radio station owned by the Zylofon Media boss.
Superintendent Kwesi Ofori said the customers were arrested for pelting stones at the property and people in it.
“Today is a public holiday. A group of boys violently massed up here, throwing stones and attacking personnel working here", Superintendent Ofori recounted.
“One thing that the police will like to remind everybody is that one cannot take the laws into his or her own hands. It is criminal to equip yourselves with missiles like stones and materials to cause injury and harm,” he added.
Not too long ago, social media users took to the Instagram page of Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM1 to beseech him to pay their locked up monies with his gold dealership firm.
