Influencer and broadcast journalist, Bridget Otoo is currently facing a lawsuit from NAM1, the CEO of Menzgold, the defunct gold dealership company, for her continuous criticism of him, including labelling him a fraud.
The CEO is seeking a substantial amount of one million Ghana cedis as compensation for the damage caused to his reputation. As per the writ of summons sighted by Tru News Report, Bridget Otoo has been given a deadline of one week to respond to the lawsuit and appear in court.
In a previous incident, Bridget Otoo had tweeted that Nana Appiah Mensah, also known as NAM1, was able to roam freely due to his connections, while Akuapem Poloo, who had only shared nude photos of herself and her son, faced legal consequences.
“NAM1 is still free and doing Instagram post. A man described by the state as a scammer. A man whose actions has killed people, rendered thousands jobless and some are at the point of suicide! He’s free cos he’s connected! #AkuapemPoloo,” she wrote on X formerly known as Twitter.
In a different encounter, Bridget Otoo slammed NAM 1 for still defrauding customers through Menzgold’s Digital Verification Access Card. She said that more people would have been spared from Nana Appiah Mensah’s criminal activities if he had been imprisoned when he was just starting out.
Here’s what she wrote to that effect;
“I was going to tweet at the low life scammer @nam_the_patriot but he has blocked me so please screenshot it for him. If they had jailed you back in Kasoa when you were a small time criminal, you wouldn’t have harmed more people. Scammer. We told you people, he’s still scamming,” she wrote on Twitter.
However, NAM1 responded by urging Bridget Otoo to refrain from distorting his legal matters in her public statements. He emphasized that even in a foreign jurisdiction, he had been acquitted and discharged, a decision that had been upheld by both the Appeals Court and the Supreme Court.
