Lawsuit Filed Against Akan NDC Parliamentary Aspirant for Allegedly Committing US$115K Fraud

Emmanuel Nana Dabo, an aspiring parliamentary candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Akan Constituency of the Oti Region, has been sued for allegedly defrauding a businesswoman, Esi Ribeiro, of US$115,000 under the pretense of investing it in real estate for her.

The court documents, obtained by Ghanaweb, reveal that Nana Dabo and his real estate company, NND Company Limited, have been jointly sued for the fraudulent deal that occurred in 2021. The businesswoman had invested US$100,000 with an interest rate of 15%, which Nana Dabo failed to pay back.

According to the writ of summons, Nana Dabo falsely represented to the plaintiff that there were investment opportunities in his company and convinced her to invest in it. However, after receiving the money, he went into hiding and refused to pay back the amount owed to the businesswoman, despite receiving a demand notice from her lawyers.

The plaintiff is demanding that Nana Dabo pays the US$115,000 owed to her or its Ghana Cedi equivalent. She is also demanding an additional 15% interest from December 13, 2021, until the date of final payment or the prevailing commercial bank rate on the Ghana Cedi equivalent of the amount owed.

The statement of claim further reveals that the plaintiff is an experienced engineer with over 16 years of experience in the energy sector. The second defendant, NND Company Limited, is presented as a construction company with investments in real estate, and Nana Dabo is the managing director of the company and alter ego of the first defendant.

Nana Dabo is currently vying for the NDC parliamentary candidate position in the Akan Constituency, and he is competing with the incumbent MP, Yao Gomando, and another candidate.
