The High Court has ordered the National Investment Bank (NIB) to release any funds in the sum of GHC 310,000.00 in an account held by Ernest Owusu Bempah, Communications Director of Ghana Gas Company Limited, with the bank and pay the said amount to Mr. Ibrahim Mahama.

The Court gave the order pursuant to an application filed in the Court by lawyer Reindorf Twumasi Ankrah, the lawyer for Mr. Mahama asking the Court to compel NIB to release funds held in an account belonging to Owusu Bempah of Ghana Gas to Mr. Ibrahim Mahama as payment of judgment debt.

Information available indicates that, the National Investment Bank on 20 January, 2021 issued a cheque with the face value of GHC 107,000.0 to Mr. Ibrahim Mahama in compliance with the order of the Court.

Ibrahim Mahama last year won a judgment in court against Ernest Owusu Bempah over a defamation suit.
