A total of about sixty (60) people who lost their investments to defunct savings and loans company, DKM, have reportedly committed suicide after failed attempts to retrieve their monies.

Chairman of a group called Brong Ahafo DKM Victims Investment Association, Nana Nyarko, said all attempts made by the association proved futile and that has led many to self-destruct.

“Many have lost their lives while others have lost their jobs and serving prison terms due to moneys they borrowed for their businesses”, Mr. Nyarko said in twi.

According to him, most of them are yet to be paid by the government, contrary to claims by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, that 80% of all those who lost their investments to DKM have been paid.

Mr. Nyarko said that Finance Minister’s claims cannot be true because they are just about petitioning the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on the matter.

“We are almost done with our petition to the president. The 80% payment the finance minister said has been made is not factual”, he said in twi.

The chairman therefore called on the President to call the Finance Minister to check his records well or engage depositors to assess the situation.

Mr. Nyarko also noted depositors of DKM will have no option than to act to register their displeasure to the NPP government just like they did to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) when they were in power.
