Nana Appiah Mensah, also called NAM1, has been declared wanted by INTERPOL for charges of defrauding under false pretenses.
This follows his inability to repay funds invested with his company since it was shut down by BoG and SEC about six months ago.
However, the spokesperson for embattled gold dealership firm has said that the CEO, NAM1, had travelled abroad to work in order to repay customers locked up investments with the firm.
He was speaking on reports that the CEO breached his bail conditions and run away with his family leaving workers to face the wrath of angry investors alone.
The spokesperson, Nii Armah Amarteifio, rubbished the reports, explaining that his boss had travelled with the intention of working abroad to repay the customers.
