The family of Nii Odoi Mensah is unhappy about claims by filmmaker, Socrate Safo that the family needs $68,000 to bring the remains of the late actor back home from China.

Head of the family, Nii Kwa, who spoke to Multimedia’s Kwaku Adu Kumi expressed his displeasure at Socrate for making public those figures without consulting the family.

“If you get an information, furnish us with the information and ask of how we intend dealing with it. If you don’t go about it this way but say it on radio, are you a good friend? It’s not fair. We are considering how to get his body back home. If we are unable to and he has to be cremated, we will take a collective decision. Going about and spreading this shows that you didn’t love him. If I set my eyes on him…” he said.

Nii Kwa also took a swipe at movie producer David Owusu for suggested that the remains of Nii Odoi Mensah be cremated in China where he passed on. Mr Owusu suggested that the money to be used in flying the body back be used to cater for the children.

Reacting to his suggestion, Nii Kwa said, “Does David know our coffers? This is distasteful.”

Meanwhile, Socrate Safo has apologised to the family for putting out the information without their permission.

“If they are angry at me for putting out such an information, I’m not a family member, I apologise. They have not made me the spokesperson; I spoke as a friend. I understand them. I apologise,” he noted.

Nii Odoi Mensah, who once served as President of the Ghana Actors Guild, passed on in China while undergoing kidney treatment.
