Nana Appiah Mensah who is reportedly held in custody is set to stand trial for allegedly defrauding customers.
Troubled customers of Menzgold today, took upon themselves to embark on an agenda to free Nam1 #FreeNam1 as he stands before the court to defend charges tied around his neck.
Nam1, as he’s mostly referred to, had his company, Menzgold shut down in mid-2018 due to some allegations leveled against him and his company.
Immediately Menzgold got shut down, he made a quick journey to Dubai, purposely to transact business with a said company he supplied over 700 kilograms worth of gold to.
But unfortunately, upon his arrival in Dubai, he was sued by a client who claimed Nana Appiah has duped him and so was charged and detained, made to stand trial until he was declared free.
Now, prior to that, the Government of Ghana had already placed an Interpol red alert on him, declaring him wanted.
Fast forward, he was able to clear himself of all charges pressed on him and came out victorious.
Having plans of paying back monies owed his distressed customers in Ghana, he decided to come back, and upon his arrival, was arrested at the Kotoka International Airport, Accra.
He was denied bail by the Ghana Police Service.
According to the police, the move was to give them time to conclude their investigation.
Again this was based on charges of two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretense and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without a license, contrary to Section 6 (1) of the Banks and Specialised Deposit-taking Institutions Act, 2016 (Act 930).
Nam1 wasn’t charged alone, his sister and his wife, Benedicta Appiah and Rose Tetteh, respectively, were slapped with two counts of abetment to defraud by false pretense and two counts of abetment to carry out banking business without a license, contrary to Section 6 (1) of Act 930. The two women are, however, at large.
