VIDEOS: Customers besiege Menzgold premises after SEC order


Customers of Menzgold Ghana Limited have besieged the premises of the gold dealership firm in East Legon to retrieve their deposits following an order by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) directing the company to shut down their investment section with immediate effect.

Initially chaotic scenes sparked by the SEC announcement have now calmed after the customers who are worried about the safety of their deposits were permitted into the Menzgold premises.
