Some aggrieved customers of EL Real Estates and Tikowre Capital say they were forced to make noise about their locked up cash because the owner of the two schemes, pastor Kelvin Kobiri, who is the founder of the Zoe Outreach Embassy, threatened not to release their cash if they continue making noise about it.
“The pastor and some of his members told us if we make noise about the issue just like how the Menzgold issue has escalated which has dragged government into it, we won’t get our monies and he will personally worsen the matter,” an angry customer, Eugene Offei told Accra based Okay FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
According to Mr Offei, they have video and audio recordings to prove that they were threatened by pastor Kobiri.
The aggrieved customers’ reaction comes after scores of aggrieved customers stormed his East Legon-based church for the second time in a week to demand their locked up cash.
The customers were met with a security blockade of police and soldiers who denied them access to the church premises.
The security officials assaulted the customers who resisted attempts to stop them.
The aggrieved members say pastor Kobiri, convinced them to invest hundreds of cedis with EL Real Estates and Tikowre Capital.
Eugene Offei, an angry customer said he drove all the way from Tarkwa to Accra to retrieve his money.
He added that all the monies he got from his mining business, which amounted to GH¢50, 000.00, were invested in EL Real Estates Company.
“I invested GH¢50,000.00, I was working in the mine but not anymore, so when they paid us we put all our monies in there,” he said.
The accused pastor has, meanwhile been escorted by the police to the Criminal Investigations Department for further probe.
