Ghana’s Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, in August 2018, made it clear to persons who were depositing chunks of money into his bank account that he was not going to be involved in the obstruction of justice.

Mr. Amidu, in a statement revealed that he was amazed by the sudden money transfers from unknown sources into his account but he in turn directed his Branch Manager not to accept such payments.

Portions of the statement read: “On 3rd August 2018, I was amazed when I went to one of the branches of my Bank to make a cash withdrawal by cheque from my current account only to be informed that the balance to my credit on the account had leaped more than five-fold; from my last balance on 7th July 2018. My account had been credited on 19th July 2018 with a transferred payment.”

“I immediately made a verbal objection to the Branch Manager where I had gone to make the withdrawal in view of my earlier standing instructions to my Branch Manager not to accept any payments or transfers into my account without first clearing with me personally owing to an earlier incident when a similar payment was transferred to the credit of my account without notice or authorization from me in 2015,” Amidu indicated in his article.
