The inheritance battle surrounding the late brother of former Water and Sanitation Minister, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has taken a dramatic turn as Irene Kensah, wife of the deceased, has decided to assert her claim to the 800,000 dollars reported to be part of her late husband’s estate. In a surprising development, Irene Kensah has instructed her lawyer, the esteemed Lawyer Kusi, to officially lay claim to the substantial sum and include it in the list of inventories of letters of administration.

The emergence of this new claim has come at a strategic moment for Irene Kensah, who had already been collaborating with her lawyer to oversee the distribution of her late husband’s properties. When news of the $800,000 cash came to her attention, she saw it as a timely opportunity to secure her financial future and that of her children.

In an exclusive interview with Sompa FM, Irene Kensah revealed her intentions, stating, “I believe that the $800,000 rightfully belongs to my late husband’s estate, and it is crucial for the well-being of our family that we claim it now.”

Lawyer Kusi, who is representing Irene Kensah, affirmed the validity of their claim and the reasons behind it. “Our objective is to ensure the welfare of the widow and her children,” he said. “We intend to assert ownership over all properties, including the $800,000 cash, to support Irene and her family during these difficult times.”

The legal team led by Lawyer Kusi is confident that their case will face no challenges regarding the ownership of the 800,000 dollars. They cite official records and the public acknowledgement of the cash by both the Special Prosecutor and Paul Adom-Otchere of Metro TV as evidence in their favour.

The twist in the story stems from a high-profile interview conducted by Paul Adom-Otchere on his widely watched show, “Good Evening Ghana.” In a recent episode, he claimed to have had an exclusive conversation with Cecilia Abena Dapaah, where she purportedly revealed that $800,000 out of the reported $1 million belongs to the estate of Irene Kensah ‘s late husband.

In his July 25, 2023 edition of “Good Evening Ghana,” Adom-Otchere revealed that $800,000, which was part of the allegedly stolen funds, belonged to Madam Dapaah’s deceased brother, Nana Akwasi Eddan II, who served as the Numuahene of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

According to Mr Adom-Otchere, the money was given to Cecilia Dapaah by her late mother, Nana Ode Nyarko II. The funds were delivered to Cecilia in a box, with Nana Akwasi Eddan II intending to use it for construction works. However, upon his passing, the family decided to entrust the money to Madam Dapaah due to the security she enjoyed in her position.

The late mother, Nana Ode Nyarko II, revealed that the money was meant for Nana Akwasi Eddan II’s contractor work, including plans to purchase land in Bremang and build and sell houses. The family members suggested giving the money to Cecilia, recognizing her position as a Minister and the protection provided by her police officer husband. Cecilia then brought the money to Accra after her mother’s passing.

Lawyer Kusi and Irene Kinser have decided to take action based on this revelation and recover all properties believed to have been acquired with some portion of the 800,000 dollars. The legal team is gearing up for a potentially contentious battle over the estate’s assets and the rightful distribution of the late brother’s wealth.

As the news continues to captivate the nation, questions arise about the implications of Irene Kinser’s claim for Cecilia Abena Dapaah and the division of the late brother’s estate. Legal experts are closely watching the proceedings, anticipating a complex legal battle that could set significant precedents in matters of inheritance and property rights.

With the Lawyer and his client engaging in exclusive interviews with Sompa FM, it is evident that the dispute over the 800,000 dollars is far from over. The nation eagerly awaits the resolution of this intriguing legal battle that has gripped the public’s attention.
