Gabby Otchere-Darko announces search for NAM1 as he breaches bail condition and runs awayGabby stated that it could not be looked on for people like Nana Appiah, popularly called NAM1, “who allegedly dupe others with such impunity to get away with it easily like that.” He stated clearly that he would not want a pesewa of his tax money to be used in paying for issues arising from such “Ponzi matters”, therefore, the law must deal with NAM1. He then charged all Ghanaians to “smoke” NAM1 out from his hiding place.

“I understand the owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, has breached his bail condition and absconded. We can’t allow those who allegedly dupe people with such impunity to get away with it that easily,” Gabby disclosed. “Let’s smoke them out, wherever they are, and throw the book at them! While, I will not want a pesewa of my tax money to be involved with this ponzi matter, I believe majority of Ghanaians will agree with me that the law must come down heavily on those who use such schemes to destroy the lives of many people,” he fumed.

His message is sure to bring relief to the large number of Ghanaians who had invested huge sums of money with NAM1’s Menzgold. In an earlier report by, it was disclosed that Menzgold had 1.8 million customers.
