An amount of GH¢13,850,000 was realised from the sale of the two luxury mansions which were located on Ghanaians most expensive residential estates.
The money raised from the sale of two properties would be used to settle part of the GH¢51.2 million he is currently owing the state.

The Ministry for National Security proposed that some of Woyome’s properties on auction be transferred to the state to offset the GH¢51.2 million
The Supreme Court in July directed the state to mobilize funds to purchase four properties belonging to Woyome in fulfillment of the court order that the properties to be sold to defray the debt.
YEN.com.gh earlier report sadly revealed that he had to resort to representing himself in court as he did on Tuesday, October 13, 2020.
According to him, no lawyer wants to represent him in court to argue his case against the auctioning of his properties meant to offset the GH¢46 million he owes the state.
When asked by the Chief Justice why he (Woyome) was not represented by a lawyer, Woyome answered that he had difficulties in engaging the services of a lawyer because “they all felt humiliated in the case”.
