The Executive Director of Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO), Dr. K.K. Amoah has refuted claims he was a beneficiary of the Menzgold proceeds.
EOCO called on the public to disregard information circulating on social media about some purported comments made by a supposed brother of embattled Menzgold CEO, Nana Appiah Mensah.
In a video, the man who introduced himself as the KOD alleged 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.
In a press statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs, Jacqueline Avotri, EOCO described the allegations as malicious and slanderous.
“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.”
“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.”
