The Office of the Special Prosecutor has revealed the whereabouts of the concealed funds that were discovered by its agents during a search of Cecilia Dapaah’s home, a former minister of sanitation.

According to the Office’s most recent court records, a search was made after hearing rumors that large quantities of money had been taken from her Ablemkpe home.

It added that the search on July 24, 2023 turned up $590,000 and $286,007 in cash.

Additional searches were carried out in the ousted minister’s two additional homes in Tesano and Cantonments, both in Accra.

“The monies were craftily concealed in wraps, polythene bags, clothes, 32 envelopes, and were buried and secreted in obscure places in the residence, some with labels and descriptions,” the Office said.

The Office has made several attempts to corroborate the confiscation of allegedly contaminated properties belonging to Madam Dapaah, but this is the most recent.

Recently, the OSP frozen various bank accounts with over 40 million transactions and confiscated millions of dollars in cash from the former Minister.

The OSP was told to release the money to Cecilia Dapaah by the Accra High Court after it declined to affirm the seizures and freezing order.

The Special Prosecutor cooperated, but is now back in court to request confirmation of the seizure.

The former Minister is said to have millions of cedis, according to papers obtained exclusively by JoyNews and presented in court by the Office of the Special Prosecutor, however the OSP claims it was unable to establish the source of the money.

Additionally, new charges are made in the petition that money was still being sent to Cecilia Dapaah’s accounts from the deceased brother of the former Minister.
