EOCO chases Maurice Ampaw over Menzgold car

The Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is on the heels of Maurice Ampaw, who still in possession of a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado belonging to embattled gold dealership firm, Menzgold Ghana Limited.

Maurice Ampaw, according to the anti-graft body, is among six people, who are yet to surrender vehicles belonging to the beleaguered company, whose Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nana Appiah Mensah, aka NAM1, is on trial in the United Arabs Emirate (UAE) over an alleged scandalous $51 million deal involving an Emirati firm named Horizon Royal Diamonds.

EOCO has therefore given Mr. Ampaw and the other five persons up to February 15, 2019 to send the vehicles to EOCO’s head office or any regional office before February 5, 2019.

The others, who are still holding onto Menzgold vehicles, are Raygan, who lives in Tema in possession of Toyota Corolla with registration number GE 7355; Clive Ofusuhene with Hyundai Elantra with registration number GE 6872-17.

The rest are Christian, who is in Tarkwa with Hyundai i10 with registration number GN 5884-15, Okeyere in Kumasi; Hyundai i10 with registration number GN 9727-15 and the late Prince Blewuo, whose family is in possession of the Hyundai i10 with registration number GN 1662-16.

Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) is said to be making headway in tracking properties of the company, including those of its beleaguered CEO.

According to sources of DGN Onilne at EOCO, the anti-graft body has managed to secure over 40 luxurious cars and a number of mansions belonging to NAM1, which could possibly be sold to settle his indebtedness to his customers.

Sources say EOCO has chosen to take swift action because it does not want any would-be claimants to start protesting that the properties in question belong to them.

This revelation comes at a time when EOCO has frozen the bank accounts of NAM1 and is said to be making frantic efforts to trace his other assets.

The accounts said to be with three different banks, have been frozen on January 14, 2019.

EOCO has appealed to the public to volunteer further information that will lead to the discovery of other properties of NAM1.

It is turning out that less than 5,000 people have their investments locked up with the embattled gold collectibles firm, Menzgold Ghana Limited.

DGN Online has in its possession a list indicating the total number of investors, who were doing business with Menzgold, whose Chief Executive Officer (CEO), popularly called NAM1, is currently under arrest in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), over an alleged $51 million scandalous gold deal.

Even though officials of the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) who are investigating the activities of Menzgold are tightlipped, a source claimed there are 4,998 customers and not the estimated 46,000 as published earlier in the media.
