THE CASE of US Tilapia Investment, a subsidiary of US Group of Companies, which has supposedly exploited financially scores of innocent people, has taken a new twist, with President Mahama being mentioned in the matter.
Victims of the tilapia investment scam, led by one Adjei Kwame Nkrumah, Tuesday alleged that they suspected President Mahama has a hand in their infamous exploitation by Chief Godfred Medicine, Chief Executive officer (CEO) of US Tilapia Investment.
According to him, when Godfred Medicine was arrested in Accra, he openly boasted that so far as President Mahama and the NDC remained in political power, nobody could touch him, claiming that he would be set free in the end.
At that time, he said he and the other victims considered Chief Medicine’s statement as just boastfulness but the happenings after his arrest so far gives credence to their suspicion that perhaps President Mahama has a hand in their exploitation.
Kwame Nkrumah wondered why Chief Medicine is walking about freely after he had exploited hundreds of innocent Ghanaians who invested in his supposed tilapia business while the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government looks on unconcerned.
He threw a challenge to President Mahama to come out and support the victims as they seek justice in court, to prove that he as president has nothing to do with the US Tilapia Investment scam.
Kwame Nkrumah and other victims of the alleged fraud, drawn from all over Ghana, were at the high court in Kumasi on Tuesday where he made the wild allegation during an interview with DAILY GUIDE.
He told the paper that hearing of the case was originally slated for May 21 this year, ‘but because we are in a haste to get our monies back, we stormed the court on May 12, 2015.’
‘We mistakenly thought that May 12 is May 21 that is why we came to the court in large numbers today,’ he said, adding that their life-saving investment was being toyed with by the US Tilapia Company.
Kwame Nkrumah claimed that US Tilapia Investment owes the first batch of victims that invested in the tilapia business an amount of GH¢740,000, adding that the second batch also invested a staggering GH¢90,000 in the business.
