EOCO recovers GHC27 million for state in ten months

The sum of GHC27 million is a record for EOCO, far in excess of the average GHC5 million achieved for the country in previous years.

The executive director of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), Commander of Police Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, has said her organisation will redouble its efforts to recover monies due the state and will step up its work next year.

The assurance comes after Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta announced that, in the space of ten months, EOCO retrieved GHC27.55 million from proceeds of crime – monies which otherwise would have been lost to the state.

The sum is a record for EOCO, far in excess of the average GHC5 million collected in previous years.

Speaking about the achievement, the EOCO boss said she was grateful to her management team and all officers of EOCO who made the feat possible.

COP Addo-Danquah said EOCO will also improve on its recovery rates, run sensitisation programmes on cybercrime and gaming and will extend its outreach programmes to markets, far-flung communities and religious institutions in the coming days.
