Things turned violent at the premises of DKM Microfinance this morning, when some aggrieved customers who had gone there to take their deposits pounced on its P.R.O, Mr Ransford Agyemang and subjected him to merciless beatings.
According to our reporter, the frustrated customers who besieged the company’s office to demand their monies got furious by the comment of the P.R.O when he attempted to explain to them why they could not make payment today and had to postpone to Monday, October 26, 2015.
The P.R.O incurred the wrath of customers who pounced on him and started beating him mercilessly after he was said to have engaged in some altercations with them.
The customers broke the glasses doors in an attempt to assault the C.E.O and the staff, but with the timely intervention of the police and military, the situation was brought at the control.
The military also subjected some of the customers to severe beatings, when they attempted to stop them from whisking the C.E.O, away from the premises when they sensed that, his security was in danger.
As at the time our reporter got there, the scene was chaotic and tensions continued to build and as a result of that, additional police and military men were deployed to the premises to restore order and avert any further clashes.
Some of the customers who spoke to banewsgh.com, expressed their disgust at the conduct of the police and military and accused them of taking sides by supporting DKM at the expense of the innocent customers .
They also blamed the Bank of Ghana (BOG) for the mess going on by allowing DKM to operate illegally for the past three years without any intervention to protect the interest of the innocent customers.
Meanwhile, the C.E.O Mr Martin K. Delle was arrested and detained by the police following an order from the Sunyani District Court ‘B’, but was later granted bail to the tune of GH¢ 500,000 with two sureties to be justified.
His Passport and other travelling documents according to our source were confiscated to prevent him from travelling out of the country.
