Mensah, also known as NAM1, is alleged to have defrauded one Francis Agodzie and 16,000 others of more than GHC1.68 billion.
Reacting to the allegations, the director of communications at Menzgold, Nii Armah Amartefio, explained that the firm will respect figures released by the minister of finance, Ken Ofori Atta.
Amartefio added that Ofori-Atta met with some aggrieved military customers of Menzgold, who had presented a petition to him over their locked-up funds.
Per a report by classfmonlimne.com, Ofori Atta explained that he is aware Menzgold owes GHC200 million.
Amartefio said the company is focused on paying the principals of its customers after winning a Dubai case in which the Gulf state ordered Horizon Diamonds to pay NAM1 about $39 million for gold supplied by Menzgold.

According to him, Mahama is a wrong choice insofar as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is concerned.
In an interview with Okay FM, Effah Darteh added that the former president is simply wasting his time, and as such the NDC should prepare for another term.
He explained that neither the New Patriotic Party (NPP) nor the NDC would be in power forever, and as such, the NDC should find another candidate who can secure power for them.
