According to him, the company was ransacked by some unknown persons while workers were away and made away with some valuables.
Subsequently he maintained, management resolved to moving remaining valuables to the Zylofon Headquarters where it can be closely monitored to avoid any further theft or damages.

The company seeks to empower the average Ghanaian to own a property all by themselves. With Zylofon Properties, you’ll pay half of the amount for a house and you’ll be allowed to move in, then you pay the rest of the money over a period of 5 years after which the house will be all yours.

The customers of Menzgold since July last year, have been demanding the payment of their principal investments after the gold dealership company was instructed by the Securities and Exchange Commission to halt its gold trading operations.
Aggrieved customers have since been protesting to demand for their ‘locked up’ cash from the gold firm.
The latest incident was that which happened in Kumasi Tuesday January 8 where several customers besieged the company’s branch in the region. They among other things blocked access to Adum from Amakom road and burnt several tyres to relay their frustrations and demand for their monies.
Several others have issued threats on some major news outlets to register their seriousness about the issue. Some threats indicated a ‘no vote’ for President Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2020 elections if government does not take control of events and ensure their monies are returned.
A known member of the New Patriotic Party, following that particular threat took to his Facebook page to reveal that the businessman had violated his bail terms and was on the run and called for his rearrest.
“I understand the owner of Menzgold, Nana Appiah Mensah, has breached his bail condition and absconded. We can’t allow those who allegedly dupe people with such impunity to get away with it that easily. Let’s smoke them out, wherever they are, and throw the book at them! While I will not want a pesewa of my tax money to be involved with this ponzi matter, I believe majority of Ghanaians will agree with me that the law must come down heavily on those who use such schemes to destroy the lives of many people,” he wrote.
Businessman Nana Appiah Mensah is believed to have jumped his bail condition and relocated first to Nigeria through the Togo Border and then to South Africa where his family has been since the news of the Menzgold scam broke.
