The CEO of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah, aka NAM1, plans to retrieve GH¢2.5 million he deposited with police to distribute to aggrieved customers of his firm.
NAM1 has said police were not supposed to deposit the money he gave them at the Bank of Ghana.
He told Starr FM he was expecting the police to provide a desk to distribute the monies to aggrieved customers.
“I am surprised the money has been deposited at the Bank of Ghana. I will go back to the police and ask them to give the money back to me because that was not the arrangement we had,” NAM1 said.

In a statement on Tuesday, October 24, police said the money had been deposited in the Police Exhibit account at the Bank of Ghana for the attention of the Court.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, Frederick Forson, the convener of Aggrieved Customers of Menzgold, said they were aware of the turn of events.
“So if you are a customer and somebody tells you there is payment taking place at the CID, that is not the case," he said.
Forson also urged his fellow aggrieved customers to cooperate more with the state.
"The report we are getting is that the people needed to volunteer information, some of them are dragging their feet, and I don’t think it is the best."
