Inspector Michael Nkrumah has said that the third Accused person, Nana Owusu Ensaw, received his share of $300,000 out of the four million dollars the Accused persons allegedly laundered.


Inspector Nkrumah, who is the sixth prosecution Witness in the NCA trial, said this during cross-examination by Mr. Samuel Codjoe, Counsel for the third Accused.

“…there was an evidence of $300,000 made by the third Accused into his Stanbic account, which was close to the period of the purchase of the Pegasus system. I believe that was his share of the money shared”, he explained.

In answering questions from Mr Codjoe, Inspector Nkrumah said that the first Accused, Mr. Eugene Baffoe-Bonnie, admitted in his statement to the police, that he asked the third Accused to go for some money from the fifth Accused, George Oppong (CEO of Infralocks Development Limited, but the fifth Accused did not state in his statement that he gave any money to the third Accused.

During cross-examination by Counsel for the fourth Accused, Inspector Nkrumah revealed that the first Accused, Mr. Baffoe-Bonnie, asked the third Accused to give $70,000 to the fourth Accused person.

“The first Accused told me in his statement that he directed the third Accused to disburse a total amount of $500,000 and it was disbursed to the following:
Dr. Ensaw- $200,000, Mr. William Tevie- $150,000 and the rest to Alhaji Osman”, he added.

Mr. Eugene Baffoe- Bonnie (former board chairman of the National Communications Authority), Mr. William Tevie, former Director-General of NCA, Nana Oppong Ensaw, former NCA board member, and two others, are before an Accra High Court for various financial crimes including laundering four million dollars.
