He had spent the last six months in police custody in Dubai due to a criminal case brought against him by a private company in that country.

An INTERPOL red alert notice was placed on him by the government of Ghana making it impossible for the United Arab Emirates authorities to release him from their custody after he won the case in a court in Dubai.

He had been declared wanted in Ghana over allegations of fraud brought against him by some persons who invested in his gold dealership company, Menzgold.
