The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Ghana’s mymedic.es Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) have initiated a comprehensive investigation into the assets and financial transactions of the former Ghanaian Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, and her associates in the United States.
In a social media update on platform X, previously known as Twitter, the OSP announced, “This joint initiative is dedicated to examining the legality of Ms. Dapaah’s and her associates’ wealth, with a specific focus on financial transactions between Ghana and the United States.”
The investigation follows allegations of corruption and related crimes against Ms. Dapaah, the former minister of sanitation. These allegations came to light after an astonishing discovery of nearly $1 million in cash at her residence. The theft of this significant sum by two domestic workers garnered public attention, prompting Ms. Dapaah to involve the police.
In response to public outrage and parliamentary inquiries regarding the source of the money, Ms. Dapaah resigned from her ministerial position.
In a recent development, it has been revealed that the former sanitation minister has taken legal action, filing a court plea to halt the ongoing investigation by the Office of the Special Prosecutor into her and her husband.
Ms. Dapaah continues to vehemently deny all allegations made against her.
