Defunct UT Bank chases Woyome for GH¢9.4m debt
Receivers of defunct UT Bank have dragged embattled businessman, Alfred Woyome, and his two companies to the High Court over unpaid loans.
Vish Ashiagbor and Eric Nana Nipah want the Court to cause Mr Woyome’s company, Anator Quarry Company Ltd. to refund the sum of GH₵ 9,461,505.81 being the total value of loans granted the company in 2014.
They also want the court to order a judicial sale of the head office of Anator Holding Company Ltd to offset the GH¢9,461,505.81 loan.
This debt must be paid at a monthly interest of 5% from May 2014 until the full amount plus interest is paid, the Receivers demand.
The Receivers have taken a similar action against CDH Holding Ltd and Pastor Mensa Otabil as well as other groups and individuals.
In the case of CDH Holding, the Receivers want to recover an alleged debt of ¢100 million from that holding company its subsidiary, CDH Savings and Loans. But CDH Holding has denied this claim.
