“We went there to take our monies since we did not know where the pay masters who have supposedly paid 200 aggrieved customers of Menzgold were. We stood at the gate of NAM 1 only to hear about 6 gunshots from the premises of the Menzgold boss,” Fred Forson said.

Meanwhile, embattled Menzgold boss Nana Appiah Mensah, says he has expressed in camera the unfortunate incident which is purported to have been instigated by the top hierarchy of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He posted “I have just expressed my concerns in camera to the party top hierarchy regarding the unfortunate incident yesterday, purported to have been instigated by same. An expectation on a non-existence political capital in this Menzgold scenario would result in the shot of the campaign in the foot”.

We are dealing with a commercial challenge and we are very resolute, committed and focused to overcome. Vitally both, both sides should respectfully commit to bread & butter issues based campaign in appealing to voters. The Ghanaian political culture has greatly changed and improved. #Ghanashallprosperagain,”he said.
