Embattled Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah arrived in Ghana Thursday morning after staying outside the shores of Ghana for over a year.
He was welcomed at the Kotoka International Airport with an arrest warrant and driven straight to the headquarters of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to be interrogated.
Meanwhile, a deep throat source available to this portal indicates that NAM1 has been detained at the CID headquarters.
The source revealed he is likely to be arraigned before the court on Friday, July 12, 2019, though specific charges to be pressed against him are currently not known.
An Accra Circuit Court in January this year issued an order for the immediate arrest of all Directors of Menzgold Ghana.
The warrant to arrest which was signed and issued to the police in respect of four main directors of Menzgold had warrant number 01/19, 02/19,03/19 and 04/19, requiring the police to locate and arrest immediately four persons; Nana Appiah Mensah, Rose Tetteh, Benedicta Appiah, and Abigail Mensah wherever they are. They are to be arrested owing to their various roles in the founding and operation of Menzgold Ghana as registered at the Registrar-Generals.
The warrant stated to the police: “You are hereby ordered in the name of the President forthwith to apprehend the said Nana Appiah Mensah and produce him before court”. Separate warrants were issued for all four.
