Meanwhile, it has also emerged that the defunct Capital Bank squandered GHC610 million given to them as liquidity support by the Central Bank.

The same investigative report also indicated that the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Director of defunct UT Bank Mr P.K Amoabeng received payments from a loan defaulting entity, Kofi Jobs Limited.

The loans which amounted to GHC 5m were never disclosed to the Board of the UT Bank.

Members of the general public have asked what the authorities including the auditors of the various defunct banks did before they collapsed.
