The unfolding case involving the former Sanitation Minister and Water Resources Minister, Cecilia Dapaah, has taken an even more dramatic turn.
In the wake of the startling revelation of stolen funds by her domestic staff, the Office of the Special Prosecutor embarked on a comprehensive search of the minister’s residences, prompted by the staggering amounts that were reported stolen.
Startling details have emerged from the Office of the Special Prosecutor, disclosing that a substantial sum of US$590,000 in cash was unearthed during the search conducted at the Abelemkpe residence of the former Minister.
Concurrently, an astounding amount of GHC2.730,000 in cash was also discovered at the same address.
Officials from the Office of the Special Prosecutor took immediate action, seizing these substantial cash sums as crucial evidence to support the ongoing investigation.
The OSP has subsequently frozen the accounts of the former minister’s cedi and dollar accounts pending further investigations.
An Accra High Court has set Thursday, August 17, to rule on the confirmation or otherwise of the freezing of Cecilia Dapaah’s various accounts.
