L-R: Dr Duffuor Jnr, Dr Duffuor Snr and Dr Asiama

The Police are looking for former Governor of the Central Bank and founder of defunct Unibank, Dr Kwabena Duffour Snr., for roles played in the collapse of his bank.

The two others are Dr Kwabena Duffour Jnr., CEO of Unibank and former Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG), Dr Johnson Asiama.

The three are reportedly on the run following the collapse of the bank, UPSANEWSROOM.com has learnt.

Pro-governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) newspaper, The New Statesman, was first to report that the three former top corporate executives are on the run.

“Dr Kwabena Duffuor Snr, his son, Dr Kwabena Duffuor Jnr, and Dr Johnson Asiama are being sought to assist in ongoing investigations for their respective roles in the banking sector crises, for which government has had to inject ¢12.58 billion of public funds into nine banks, including Unibank, and microfinance institutions, following their malfunction,” the newspaper reported on Thursday.

However, UPSANEWSROOM.com has gathered Dr Duffour Snr., has refused to cooperate with the police because of a pending suit before the court.

But it is not clear if he is out of the jurisdiction of the country, UPSANEWSROOM.com sources have disclosed.

Dr Johnson Asiama is reported to be out of the jurisdiction and although he was due to return on January 20, 2020, he is still not in the country, the sources revealed.

UPSANEWSROOM.com is keenly following developments and will share any update with its readers.
