Two persons are being detained by the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) for removing ten computers from the offices of Zylofon Media.
According to the EOCO, the two attempted removing the computers after the publication of the court order freezing the assets of the Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, and other related businesses owned by him.
EOCO stated that it will continue to protect assets of troubled Menzgold Ghana Limited until the court directs otherwise.
It explained that the office was mandated by law to preserve the assets of the company and its affiliates.
A Deputy Executive Secretary of the EOCO in-charge of Operations, Nana Antwi, said at a news conference in Accra on Thursday explained that they are not mandated to collect monies from the aggrieved customers.
“We are not collecting money for anybody, but we believe what we are doing will lead to substantially addressing the issue in the long run,” he said
Zylofon is noted as one of the businesses owned by Nana Appiah Mensah, popularly known as NAM1.
Jacqueline Avotri, the Head of Public Affairs at EOCO, said the office will not disclose the identities of the two persons.
She said the move “was to enforce the court order confirming the freezing of properties of Menzgold Ghana limited and other associated companies.”
She also warned that “any act by any individual to obstruct the work of this office will be dealt with in accordance with the law.”
Nana Appiah Mensah became a major player in the entertainment industry following the establishment of Zylofon Media.
