Opuni regains frozen assets

The Supreme Court has ordered the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) to lift the ban on the bank accounts of former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Dr Stephen Kwabena Opuni.

The two accounts of the suspect have been frozen for over a year by EOCO as it investigates the former CEO who headed COCOBOD for three years.

Dr Opuni has been arraigned before court for causing financial loss to the state.

This follows some new developments following investigation into the bank accounts of the embattled former COCOBOD boss.

It is the state’s case that within three years, Dr. Opuni caused 217million cedis loss to the taxpayer through dubious contracts to supply fertilisers from Germany.
