Asembi.com has sighted a report on Ghanacrusader.com indicating that the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is after Lawyer Maurice Ampaw over a Menzgold car.

According to the report, Maurice Ampaw is still in possession of a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado belonging to the embattled gold dealership firm.

The report added that Maurice Ampaw is among six people, who are yet to surrender vehicles belonging to the beleaguered company, whose Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Nana Appiah Mensah, aka NAM1, is on trial in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over an alleged scandalous $51 million deal involving an Emirati firm named Horizon Royal Diamonds.

Asembi.com noted that EOCO has given Mr. Ampaw and the other five persons up to February 15, 2019 to send the vehicles to EOCO’s head office or any regional office before February 15, 2019.

The report mentioned Raygan, who lives in Tema in possession of Toyota Corolla with registration number GE 7355; Clive Ofusuhene with Hyundai Elantra with registration number GE 6872-17 as others who are still holding onto Menzgold vehicles.

The rest are Christian, who is in Tarkwa with Hyundai i10 with registration number GN 5884-15, Okeyere in Kumasi; Hyundai i10 with registration number GN 9727-15 and the late Prince Blewuo, whose family is in possession of the Hyundai i10 with registration number GN 1662-16.

Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) is said to be making headway in tracking properties of the company, including those of its beleaguered CEO.

Ghana Crusader reports that EOCO has managed to secure over 40 luxurious cars and a number of mansions belonging to NAM1, which could possibly be sold to settle his indebtedness to his customers.

Sources say EOCO has chosen to take swift action because it does not want any would-be claimants to start protesting that the properties in question belong to them.

This revelation comes at a time when EOCO has frozen the bank accounts of NAM1 and is said to be making frantic efforts to trace his other assets.

The accounts said to be with three different banks, have been frozen on January 14, 2019.

EOCO has appealed to the public to volunteer further information that will lead to the discovery of other properties of NAM1.

It is turning out that less than 5,000 people have their investments locked up with the embattled gold collectibles firm, Menzgold Ghana Limited.

Even though officials of the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO) who are investigating the activities of Menzgold are tight-lipped, a source claimed there are 4,998 customers and not the estimated 46,000 as published earlier in the media.
