This development occurs simultaneously with ongoing legal proceedings by the police and the Attorney General against individuals accused of pilfering the alleged funds from the former minister’s home.

Madam Dapaah gained widespread attention in July 2023 when the Chronicle Newspaper reported that her household staff were taken to court on allegations of stealing $1 million, 300,000 euros, substantial amounts of cedis, and personal belongings belonging to her and her spouse.

Following a public outcry, Cecilia Dapaah subsequently resigned from her position. She was apprehended by the OSP and later granted bail.
