Saglemi Housing contractor Found Dead on Friday, October 20th, 2023

The contractor who executed the controversial Saglemi Affordable Housing Project, Andrew Clocanas, has reportedly died at his Airport Residential Apartment.

Reports say his remains was found in his washroom beneath a shower at 3:00pm on Friday, October 20. The lifeless body has since been deposited at the Lashibi Funeral Home.

Meanwhile, the cause of death is currently unknown and the Ghana Police Service has commenced investigations into his death and has thus visited his apartment to interrogate some persons.

The Clocanas and others are facing trial for their involvement in an alleged financial loss to the state.

Other accused persons are Dr. Kwaku Agyeman-Mensah, also a former Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Alhaji Ziblim Yakubu, Executive Chairman of Construtora OAS Ghana Limited (4th Accused) and Nouvi Tetteh Angelo, Chief Executive Officer and owner of Ridge Management Solutions Ghana Limited, (5th Accused).

They are standing trial over the Saglemi Affordable Housing Project and are facing 70 charges.

They are said to have willfully caused financial loss to the state of over $200m approved for the project.

They have all pleaded not guilty and have been granted bail.

Earlier, prosecutors told the court that they would call five witnesses to testify in the case, where the evidence-in-chief from the witnesses, coupled with cross-examination from the defence was estimated to last for 1, 952 hours.
