The Special Investigative Team (SIT) of the Ghana Police Service has arrested a former Chief Operating Officer of the defunct uniBank, Ekow Dadzie-Daniels, for allegedly collecting twenty-eight million Ghana cedis from customers , ostensibly for fixed deposit investments with the bank.

The police are also on a manhunt for a former Executive Director of the defunct bank, Owusu Ansere Awere, for allegedly unilaterally transferring shares valued at fifty-seven million Ghana cedis purchased by the bank in WAICA Re, a West African reinsurance company with the head office in Sierra Leone, to HODA Holdings in June 2017.

A notice signed by the team leader of SIT, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr. Edward Tabiri, said, Mr. Dadzie-Daniels is to assist SIT with investigations in respect of over twenty-eight million Ghana cedis he collected in his capacity as the Chief Operating Officer of the erstwhile uniBank.

On Awere, the notice said he is alleged to have acted in his capacity as an Executive Director, leading to a situation where unibank had no value for the investment.
