Richard is said to have died three days after the video and a picture which was taken of him sitting on the huge cash. Acoording to a publication by Herald, he wasn’t sick he just died.
The only man, whose face was shown in the video identified as Richard Baah Appiah alias “Abrokyire” has suddenly died, fueling fresh speculation that, he might have been murdered by some element among his circles for filming and releasing the footage on the cash.
Abrokyire Richard is said to be a card bearing member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The whereabouts of the person, whose home the said the money was packed continue to be a mystery.
It is speculated that, Richard was flushed out because those behind the money don’t want it to be in the public domain, since he was the only one whose face was in the picture and could be the only credible source for investigation.
Other views suggest that, Richard, might have attempted blackmailing the owners of the cash, hence got killed to silence him.
The video, which has been making the rounds for some days now, has raised eyebrows, BoG has not yet provided answers on ownership of the money estimated to be in the region of GH¢4.5 billion or GH¢5 billion. The Purpose for which the money is being credited is unkown although the video and pictures have been in circulation for some days now.
Richard is alleged to be the relation or close to an unnamed minister in the Akufo-Addo government whose home the monies were packed.
The picture of Richard sitting on the arranged bundle of cash, hit the internet at the same time the death of the former General Secretary of the governing NPP and Executive Secretary of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie aka “Sir John” was reported last Wednesday night.
Richard, who sat comfortably with his facemask hanged under his chin with another unidentified man behind him at a distance, wore a long sleeve shirt and trousers.
