The customers indicated that they were informed those who had funds beyond GHC70,000 locked up would receive GHC50,000 in cash and the rest in 5-year-bonds.
A retired soldier, whose identity is yet to be confirmed, stated that GHC50,000 out of his GHC602,000 would be invested as a bond.
Per a citinewsroom.com report, the unnamed soldier was given no documentation to that effect, leaving him confused.
His desire to know the interest rate was futile as there was no response in that regard aside the fact that there was no written agreement to that effect.
