Scandal Over Confiscated Assets Chair


The cover of the chairman of the Confiscated Assets Committee under the Office of the President, Nana Obiri, has been blown after diverting vehicles for personal gains.

Credible information picked up by DAYBREAK indicates that the chairman, responsible for the auctioning of seized vehicles has opened a garage where he diverts these vehicles.

Instead of auctioning these vehicles at a cheaper amount, he allegedly diverts them.

The said private garage is allegedly located at Oyarifa, a suburb of Accra, where he sells the seized vehicles and pockets the proceeds.

Even though Nana Obiri has done this on the blind side of Ghanaians without traces for a while now.

Some of the Assets Committee members who have become aware of their chair’s move are unhappy about the naked thievery.

They want President Akufo-Addo to remove their chairman as head of the Committee.

According to insider sources, Nana Obiri was questioned about these diverted vehicles but he gave flimsy excuses which sources say did not make sense.

Nana Obiri is alleged to have planned and executed this plan so well but it appears all that is in the open now.

Another allegation is that Nana Obiri has created chits with fake names and so he gives these chits out as and when he likes and who is involved.

Asked why he created his chits with nonexistence names, the chair of the Confiscated Assets Committee said he had to because he did not want owners of the seized vehicles to trace who may have bought their seized vehicles.

But this appears not to have convinced the Committee members who want him replaced with immediate effect.
