The Greater Accra Regional Police Command has arrested over 100 customers of Menzgold who stormed the house of the company’s Chief Executive Nana Appiah Mensah, NAM1.
The Head of Operations at the Accra Regional Police Command, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kwesi Ofori briefing the media said the customers did not inform the police of the exercise.
Explaining reasons for the arrest, he said, “……this group of persons did not inform the police that they will be embarking on a demonstration today, no information to the police and we all know that we leave in a democratic country with rules, regulations and laws, we have the Public Order Act and looking at the law it mandates every citizen to inform the police with any intention to demonstrate…….and looking at this environment it is an estate meant for several people and for the customers to invade premises and assaulting the security detail of the estate and having forced entry into the place to carry such an illegal exercise that has something to do with the police..”
The arrested customers who are from Takwa, Accra and Kumasi are being sent to the Police Headquarters.

“Until he pays me I will never leave here, today if NAM1 do not pay me unless he pays and if he pays i will leave here.”
