Sources close to the presidency told YEN.com.gh that Ibrahim was on Tuesday afternoon facing tough grilling from EOCO over the dud cheques.

Ibrahim usually signed cheques for GRA to cover the duties on his imports, but when the cheques always bounced when the agency tried to cash them at the bank.

He is, therefore, said to owe the GRA millions of dollars from unpaid import duties, which the agency could not retrieve while former president Mahama was in power.

As at the time of reporting, the grilling was still ongoing at the headquarters of EOCO in Accra, according to information provided to this medium.

Ibrahim is the CEO of Engineers & Planners, which provides ancillary services to mining companies.
