An Accra Circuit Court issued a warrant for his arrest last week but a press release by the police Monday indicates that NAM1 has already been arrested in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) capital on December 7 after “a gold deal gone wrong.”
Following confirmation of NAM1's arrest, the the Deputy Attorney General in an interview on Joy FM said government is ready to bring NAM1 to face the law.
He said the delegation’s mission will be to “try to strike a deal with the government of the Emirates to see to the fact that he is brought back to Ghana to face justice.
He also added that because Ghana and the UAE share no extradition treaty, the team through law and diplomacy will work to reach an agreement to have NAM1 released.
