US$800,000 out of the US$1 million stolen from the Minister’s Abelemkpe home in Accra, was said to belong to one Nana Akwasi Essan II, Numuahene to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and a brother of Madam Dapaah, who died in January 2022, but a new charge sheet has since pop up, saying the US$1 million now belongs to her.
The 300,000 Euros also belongs to her contrary to reports that part of the money belongs to her husband, Daniel Osei Kuffour.
Before the matter became public, the narrative had been that the huge sums belonged to her, but the story changed that her late brother and late mother were the owners of the sums.
Prior to this, the huge sums were also mentioned as funeral donations until Paul Adom Otchere brought in her late brother as the owner. The Attorney General was to capture this in his statement to the public, but that has now changed again to the sums being “the property of Cecilia Dapaah” on the amended charge sheet.
Many are saying the ex-Minster is afraid that, Irene Kensah, the widow of her late brother, will take the money from her, if she comes to lead the claim that the money belongs to the dead man. What this means is that she reverts to the earlier situation of having to prove to Ghanaians where and how she acquired the huge sums.
