A background on the story according to a published piece by The Herald Newspaper in January implicated Charles Opoku Darko, a counterpart of Ade, a Nigerian who allegedly dribbled a Dubai-based gold buyer; Horizon Royal Diamonds DMCC of $51 million.
According to the report, Adentunji Adewoye Olorunfemi, the Nigerian and Charles Opoku-Darko were two suspects in connection to the Menzgold SAGA.
Fast forward, Ameyaw Debrah, a Ghanaian celebrity blogger, freelance journalist, and reporter has reportedly publish a conversation he had today with Charles Opoku Darko.
According to a piece on Ameyaw Debrah’s website, Charles Opoku Darko has explained that these allegations against him were untrue.
According to the article, Charles’ friend Adentunji requested to buy some houses from him and after signing the contract documents, a bank transaction was made as payment for the houses. He said: “However, when I was going to withdraw some of the money, that was when I realized that the account had been frozen by EOCO. I was invited by EOCO and I explained and presented documents showing the purpose of the transaction.”
“Adentunji paid for the services of a lawyer on his own, and eventually the funds were released. I wanted to transfer the money to his account but his accounts had been frozen so I signed for him to withdraw his money from my account and terminated the sale of the houses. I have no business with him and whatever he went to do in Dubai. I have a lot of people buying properties from me, I cannot know how they all get their money to pay me.”
‘I don’t know why I am being added up to this whole scandal. I have not collected money from Ghanaians. I have not done any business with NAM1 and Ade. I didn’t follow either of them to go and sign any business transaction in Dubai. I don’t know anything about this.”
