Customers of the defunct DKM Diamond Microfinance Company in Bolgantanga, Upper East Region were forced to stop the liquidation exercise at the Ghana Commercial Bank on Wednesday, October 19 after receiving payments of GH¢10 and GH¢20 as compensation.
The customers claim the payments are a slight to them, having invested between GH¢2,000 and GH¢20,000.
According to officials, the payments were supposed to be the amounts used to open accounts with the defunct company.
They gave no further explanation.
The customers, on the other hand, are demanding full payment of their investments.
TV3‘s Upper East Region correspondent Rabiu Tanko Mohammed reports that some of the irate customers claim they had come from “very far” places to spend the night over at Bolgatanga, only to be given such amounts.
Others, he said, expressed disappointment and vowed to vote against the ruling government.
The confusion led to the beefing up of security at the GCB Bank.
Earlier in the week, a similar exercise in the Brong Ahafo Region saw customers who have invested more than GH¢3,500 not receiving more.
Those who have invested below that amount, however, duly received their compensations.
