The Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) has urged the public to disregard ‘false’ information circulating on social media about some purported comments made by a supposed brother of embattled Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah against the Executive Director of EOCO, Dr. K.K. Amoah.
One KOD, a supposed brother of Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah has alleged in a video that has gone viral on social media, that the Executive Director of EOCO had received luxurious vehicles, mobile phones and an undisclosed amount of money to distort the on-going investigation into Menzgold’s business which has been widely described as a Ponzi-scheme.
But EOCO in a press statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs, Jacqueline Avotri, stated that the video was falsely created because EOCO incurred the wrath some customers of the gold trading company after freezing the assets of Menzgold and its related companies.
“The video is malicious and slanderous with the main aim of destroying the image of the Office and the reputation of the Executive Director. The supposed brother (KOD) of Nana Appiah has no basis for his allegations. We wish to state clearly that the statement is totally false.”
“The office is of the opinion that the freezing of the assets of Menzgold Company limited and its associated companies has incurred the displeasure of some beneficiaries of the assets of Menzgold Company limited which may have prompted the video in circulation.”
EOCO also assured the public that they would not be compromised in their duty of retrieving and preserving the assets owned by Menzgold and its associated companies.
“The office is further assuring the general public that we have a duty to perform and would continue to secure the asset of Menzgold Company limited and its associated companies in accordance with our mandate as confirmed by the order of the court.”
