The controversy surrounding the money that was taken from the residence of Cecilia Dapaah, the former minister of sanitation and water resources, seems to be getting new information every day.
According to court documents obtained by Ghent Multimedia, a search of the troubled former minister’s houses in Cantonments, Abelemkpe, and Tesano revealed significant sums of money in both local and foreign currencies.
The OSP has discovered additional cash at the Abelemkpe, where it was reported that US$1 million, £300,000, and other assets, including Kente and jewellery belonging to the former minister and her husband, were stolen.
The document stated that the OSP discovered US$590,000 in cash there.
It also stated that GH2,730,000 was discovered at the same house.
The sums of money discovered in the former minister’s Prudential Bank and Société Générale Ghana accounts, according to documents that JoyNews claims to have intercepted, were shown in the documents.
According to the report, Cecelia Dapaah’s Prudential Bank accounts contained US$5 million and GH48 million, while her Société Générale account contained GH1 million in investments and 700,00 in cash.
