Scores of Menzgold customers have besieged the Accra regional Police headquarters demanding the release of their colleagues who were arrested today at the home of Nana Appiah Mensah.
Over 100 customers of the defunct gold firm were arrested after they stormed the Accra residence of the CEO of the company over their locked up investment.
The customers who have trooped the headquarters say they do not understand the basis of the arrest since they are demanding their monies.
The customers who accuse the police of using brut force on them say they will remain at the police regional headquarters until their colleagues are released.
They are also begging President Akufo-Addo to rescind on his earlier decision not to intervene in the matter.
In a much-awaited payment schedule in December, the company said customers who did not receive any interest on their investment from the start of contract will be the first to be paid beginning Friday, December 27.
