A security analyst, Adib Saani, has indicated that it would be unfair on the part of the committee probing the veracity of the leaked tape to oust the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Danpare, not to invite him.
This, he noted, would defy natural justice following allegations by COP George Alex Mensah and Superintendent Asare that the IGP masterminded the recording of the tape and decided to leak a portion of it.
He said that while he was hopeful that the committee would do a good job, the allegations by the two officers against the IGP are very serious, and he must also be given the chance to respond.
Mr. Saani made these assertions when he spoke on A1 Radio’s News Link.
It will be recalled that when COP Mensah appeared before the committee on Thursday, August 31, he alleged that the IGP’s leadership style has led to a decline in morale among many police officers.
“Dampare is not managing the police service well, and the majority of police officers are not happy. You can call the police officers underground, and they will tell you,” he stated.
He also expressed his inability to verify several details on the tape, claiming it has been doctored and does not accurately reflect the original conversation he had with the former NPP Northern Regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu.
When Superintendent George Asare also appeared before the committee on August 4, 2023, he affirmed the assertion that the IGP was behind the leaked tape, adding that the tape was doctored and does not reflect the entire conversation they had.
He also alleged that he has in his possession a video recording of the conversation he had with Bugri Naabu.
