0

Seven aggrieved customers of gold dealership, Menzgold, have been arrested in Kumasi for alleged breaches of the law.

Three of them were first arrested Tuesday morning at the Amakom for what the Police say is a violation of the Public Order Act and verbally abusing police officers during a demonstration by hundreds of the company’s branch.

The customers who were from various parts of the country were demonstrating to demand a refund of their investments which have been locked up for months as the company’s operations have since September 2018 been shut down.

Four other customers who were a part of the demonstration were later arrested when they allegedly stormed the police station in what the police described as an “unlawful manner,” to secure bail for three colleagues arrested earlier.

All seven suspects, who were granted bail Tuesday, are to be arraigned on charges of unlawful assembly and offensive conduct Wednesday before the Kumasi Circuit Court
