Following the leak of the amounts found in Cecilia Abena Dapaah’s various bank accounts which are under supervision by the Office of the Special Prosecutor, OSP has denied leaking the details of Cecilia Abena Dapaah’s bank account details.

According to the OSP, it has not disclosed any information “in respect of the bank accounts of Cecilia Abena Dapaah”. The order to free the accounts is from the OSP as the office continues to dig deeper into the scandal.

A statement by the OSP said, “The Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) has not disclosed or revealed any information or details in respect of the bank accounts of Cecilia Abena Dapaah, which are under a frozen order issued by the Special Prosecutor.

“The OSP urges the public to disregard media accounts on purported bank balances reported to have been disclosed by the OSP.”

Background

Cecilia Abena Dapaah, the embattled former Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources was forced to resign after a case she sent to police and subsequently to court backfired on her. She had dragged her former housemaids and their alleged accomplices to the court for stealing US$1 million and millions of Ghana Cedis,  €300,000 and several personal belongings worth tens of thousands of Ghana Cedis.

She later submitted her resignation to President Akufo-Addo saying “Whereas I can state emphatically that those figures do not represent correctly what my husband and I reported to the Police, I am very much aware of the import of such stories around someone in my position. I am resigning therefore because I do not want this matter to become a preoccupation of government and a hindrance to the work of government at such a crucial time.”
