An international relations expert, Frank Agyarko Boateng, has said the Director of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), Rashid Seidu Inusah, must be sacked by President Nana Akufo-Addo over the fleeing of Ghana by Nana Appiah Mensah (NAM1), the Chief Executive Officer of gold dealership firm Menzgold Ghana Limited.
The founder of think tank Danquah Institute (DI), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, had claimed that NAM1 fled Ghana and currently in hiding.
Following a demonstration by aggrieved clients of the company in Kumasi on Tuesday, 8 January 2018, Mr Asare Otchere-Darko tweeted: “I understand the owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, has breached his bail condition and absconded.
“We can’t allow those who allegedly dupe people with such impunity to get away with it that easily. Let’s smoke them out, wherever they are, and throw the book at them!
“While I will not want a pesewa of my tax money to be involved with this Ponzi matter, I believe the majority of Ghanaians will agree with me that the law must come down heavily on those who use such schemes to destroy the lives of many people”.
Mr Boateng told Ghana Yensom on Accra 100.5FM, hosted by Kwabena Prah Jnr (The Don) on Thursday, 10 January 2019 that: “Yes, the security should be held liable. The BNI boss and others who had a role to play should be questioned and if possible sacked.”
He said: “NAM1’s passport should have been seized immediately he was arrested, but that was not done. Now if he is a sophisticated fraudster, it will be difficult to arrest him, he can obtain different passports and even change his name.”
