Some retired police officers and petty traders at Kasoa in the Central Region say they will make a citizen’s arrest if the owner of gold dealership company Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, is spotted in the region, since the warrant issued for his capture gives them the right to do so.
According to some of the retired officers whose monies have been locked up at Menzgold, their economic lives have been devastated by the failure of the company to pay back their investments, making it difficult to put food on their tables.
“Things have been difficult for us since the Menzgold saga started,” Samson Addai Mensah, a retired police officer at Kasoa said.Speaking to Citi News in an interview, Joseph, Nsiah a petty trader at Kasoa to;d Citi News that the whole situation with Menzgold has put a strain on his marriage and left it on the brink of collapse.
“My wife has threatened to divorce me because I took monies from her and invested in Menzgold. Now I don’t have peace of mind at home,” Joseph Nsiah said.
Some of the aggrieved police officers said they are excited the court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Nana Appiah Mensah.
They, however, blamed the government and the Securities and Exchange Commission for the delay in ordering the arrest of Mr. Appiah Mensah since they were the ones who ordered him to stop his operations.
“We blame the government and the Securities and Exchange Commission for delaying in arresting Nana Appiah Mensah owner of Menzgold,” some aggrieved Police Officers said.
A petty trader who only gave his name as Bright, hinted that he decided to invest in Menzgold due to the fact that Nana Appiah Mensah was born and bred in Kasoa, and his numerous humanitarian acts for the widows and orphans in Kasoa.
“I was touched by his kind gesture towards orphans and widows, and that informed my decision to invest in his company,” the petty trader noted.
