He was later picked up by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) on November 21, 2018, where he was granted bail under certain conditions.
YEN.com.gh understands that he jumped bail and failed to report on three consecutive occasions. He also cut off all communications with the security agencies, as he could not be reached either on phone or any other means. The government, however, intends to use all available resources to ensure that NAM1 is brought to justice.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, the nephew of President Akufo-Addo, revealed that NAM1 had jumped bail and absconded from Ghana.
According to reports, NAM1 earlier moved his son and wife, Roselyn out of Ghana to South Africa where he owns a stream of real estate. His wife’s fashion and jewellery shop, Rozy’s Collections, in Accra, has been emptied and closed. Neighbours say the shop was emptied by a team who came around at night with 3 Tundras and one KIA pickup about two weeks ago to pack the shop’s wares. His mother, Eva Brew and sister, Abigail Mensah, who played prominent roles in the business are however in the country chasing their own debtors.
