Investigations into alleged reports of bribery against workers and security personnel of GCB bank by DKM customers are expected to be completed on Friday 27th January, 2017.
The police, upon request from the Registrar General’s Department, who are official liquidators of DKM micro finance company, early this month begun investigations into the matter.
“Some of the workers from the Registrar General’s Department have been to the various payment centres to confirm the allegations…A lot of things are coming up so probably by next week we should come up with the final answer to that,” the Principal Company Inspector for the Official Liquidator, Jones Nathaniel Ansah told Citi Business News.
According to the DKM customers, officials of the GCB Bank as well as security personnel at the various payment stations demand between GH¢200 and GH¢500 before paying customers their locked up cash.
Spokesperson for some of the DKM customers in Tamale, Mohammed Ibn Issaka, spoke to Citi Business News in the early days of the development and described the situation as chaotic.
“The payment is ongoing but the demand for money is delaying the process because some police officers and some cashiers at the bank are liaising together and exploiting the customers,” he said.
Despite the ongoing investigations Citi Business News has learnt the situation still persists at the payments centres especially at the Wa branch of GCB Bank.
But Jones Nathaniel Ansah is optimistic their investigations should help bring perpetrators to book.
“We have had a whole lot of reports concerning theses bribery allegations going on at the various centers; the official liquidator has asked the people over there too. I need not to come out with anything because if I should come out they are going to be alert and halt whatever plans we have now.”
