- An Accra circuit court has ordered for the arrest of Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah
- The arrest also extends to three other directors of the company
- It has been revealed that all the directors were direct relatives of Nana Appiah, including his wife and younger sisters
An Accra Circuit Court has issued an order for the immediate arrest of all Directors of Menzgold Ghana, according to reports gathered by YEN.com.gh on social media.
The warrant to arrest which was signed and issued to the police on Wednesday afternoon in respect of four main directors of Menzgold had warrant number 01/19, 02/19,03/19 and 04/19.
The warrant requires the police to locate and arrest immediately four persons; Nana Appiah Mensah, Rose Tetteh, Benedicta Appiah, and Abigail Mensah, wherever they are.
The other three whose names appeared on the warrant document were listed on the registration documents of Menzgold Ghana as directors and are also direct relatives of Nana Appiah, popuarly called NAM1, the main architect of Menzgold.
Rose Tetteh is his wife while Benedicta Appiah is his younger sister and Abigail Mensah also his younger sister.
The court warrant documents stated their offense as “Defrauding by false pretense contrary to section 131 of 29/60” for which reason they were wanted.
The warrant further stated “You are hereby ordered in the name of the President forthwith to apprehend the said Nana Appiah Mensah and produce him before court”.
Source inside the Ghana Immigration Service have revealed they have been ordered to be on the lookout for any of these persons at all the entry and exit points of Ghana.
While it is believed that Nana Appiah Mensah managed to escape from bail to South Africa with his wife Rose Tetteh who has now been declared wanted by virtue of she being a director of the company, the other two directors are believed to be in Ghana and preparing to disappear too.
Benedicta Appiah, according to immigration details, was born on 27th May 1992 while her sister Abigail Mensah was on born on 24th April 1987. The immigration officers are on high alert.
For the clearance of doubt, the warrant is for the arrest of top directors, not the managment of Menzgold.
Staff of collapsed gold trade hub, Menzgold last year exposed the hidden faces behind the embattled company and revealed that there were moves by these individuals to sell off their assets and secretly leave the country in view of the current state of the company.
Until this new disclosure, it has been only Nana Appiah Mensah whose face had been in the public domain although he was not directly in charge of managing the franchise.
