The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, has been identified by a court prosecutor as the one who fired gunshots when protestors massed up at his Trassaco residence.
Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that he felt threatened by the presence of the people gathered there and therefore fired the shots to ward them off.
Following the incident, 92 people are facing four charges in court after Mensah, also known as NAM1 filed the case in court.

Per a report by classfmonline.com, the Public Relations Officer of the company, Nii Amarh Amartefio, denied on Thursday, January 9, 2020, that NAM1 was the one who fired the shots the day before.
Amarteifio also said although the security men in NAM1’s house are armed, he could not tell immediately if any of them fired the three shots that the customers complained were aimed at them.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that police officers arrested some of the protesters who went to the house to demand their investment because they failed to secure permission to do so.
