Criminal Investigations Department denies claims that NAM1 was arrested and has absconded

The police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) said it has no case lodged against chief executive of Menzgold Ghana, Nana Appiah Mensah, who was said to have fled Ghana in the midst of the firm’s crisis.

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, January 8 claimed Nana Appiah 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 Otchere-Darko, the director of the police CID, DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, said as far as the police were concerned, they had “never arrested or invited” Nana Appiah Mensah.

She said there was no complaint at the Police Headquarters as at Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

However, she said that she was aware the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) was investigating NAM 1 who was believed to be hiding in South Africa due to agitation by customers of his Menzgold who have been demanding for their investments.

A high-ranking NPP member, and confidante of President Akufo-Addo, Gabby Otchere-Darko, announced that whoever had information on the whereabouts of Nana Appiah Mensah, should report it.

He said he had learnt that Nana Appiah had defied his bail conditions and run away, apparently without the notice of the security officers.
