The assets of the former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), Stephen Kwabena Opuni, have been frozen as an investigation into his tenure is carried out.
The anti-graft Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) is carrying out the probe, particularly into some deals signed towards the end of his tenure.
These multi million dollar deals are believed to have been fraudulent, capping of a tenure that has been dogged by allegations of corruption against Opuni.
