Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Nana Kissi, a customer of gold dealership firm, Menzgold Ghana Limited, has been arrested and granted bail after threatening Nana Appiah Mensah, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company.
Information available suggested that Kissi passed threatening comments on Adom FM, an Accra-based radio station.
He was however released on Monday, January 6, 2020 after a meeting with police officials at the headquarters of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
YEN.com.gh is however yet to confirm if he has been formally charged with committing a crime.
Per a report by citinewsroom.com, another Menzgold customer was arrested on Thursday, January 2, 2020 and charged with offensive conduct.
According to a spokesperson of the aggrieved Menzgold customers, Frederick Forson, they will not be intimidated by the recent arrests.
He however admitted that some comments made by some customers may have not been the best.
Some social media users have meanwhile reacted to the news of the arrests:
Hany stated that Kissi is frustrated hence his action.
Akaribo added that NAM1 is simply a smart man.
To Mens, the system is simply sick.
Muhammed wondered why no one is concerned about customers of Gold Coast Security and GN Bank.
Norvieto indicated that corrupt governance would lead Ghanaians into temptation.
Gentu wondered if the government knew NAM1's actions were a threat to lives of customers.
In other news, the minister of lands and natural resources, Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh, has been involved in an accident, YEN.com.gh has learned.
He subsequently impounded the truck which smashed into his official vehicle as it was loaded with illegal lumber.
The incident occurred at Sunyani in the Bono region and it has since been reported to the police.
Per a report by Ghana Web, the accident occurred as the minister was returning from a trip in the region.
He chanced upon the truck, which has its registration number as AS4955E, heading from Dormaa to Yeji in the Bono East.
Cheremeh’s car was destroyed by the KIA driver when he attempted to stop him and enquire about the destination of the lumber.
Shedding light on the incident, Cheremeh noted that the documents covering the illegal lumber during the arrest were suspicious because the amount paid in VAT was higher than the actual cost of the lumber and therefore further investigations needed to be conducted.
