The CEO of the embattled gold trading firm, Nana Appiah Mensah is currently in deep waters as he has been declared wanted in Ghana and off the shores of the country after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department(CID), Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has disclosed that the International Criminal Police Organization(INTERPOL) is helping in the arrest of the embattled Menzgold boss, Nana Appiah Mensah.
On Wednesday, an Accra Circuit court issued a warrant for the arrest of the embattled businessman on charges of defrauding by false pretence.
This follows the inability of Menzgold to make refunds to aggrieved customers whose investments remain locked up with the gold dealership firm.
Speaking to Joy News, DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah said NAM 1 is now a wanted man in all 194-member states of INTERPOL.
“We started this investigation somewhere in December and we have gotten to the level where we are ready to issue an arrest. That is why when we got to know that NAM 1 was not in the country, we initiated the processes of informing INTERPOL so that the 194-member states will help us arrest him,” she said.
The CID boss debunked reports that NAM1 was arrested by the Police and he absconded.
“Rather, we [police] are looking for him. It is only NAM 1 that we are looking for. We had already obtained the warrant of arrest for two other directors [of Menzgold],” the CID boss added.
