The order came after  lawyer for the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC)  Arthur Chambers asked  that the accounts which they  had earlier secured a court order to freeze be released to the former NHIA boss.

All accounts of Sylvester Mensah were frozen when the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) was investigating  Mensah over possible financial malpractices when he was  NHIA  Chief Executive.

Mensah was arrested and detained at the BNI on New Year's Day (January 1) when he turned himself in at  the security outfit in response to an invitation from the (BNI) Director. He was subsequently released on bail after some eleven hours in custody.

Prior to his January 1 arrest, seven fully armed BNI officials are alleged to have raided his private residence.

Though BNI officials have denied the invasion, a CCTV recording of the incident captured all seven gunmen as well as the vehicles with which they went to Mr. Mensah's house.
