    Livestreaming: IGP Dampare appears before Parliamentary Committee on leaked tape

    The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, is currently before the ad-hoc committee tasked with investigating the alleged tape plotting his removal from office.

    Dr. Dampare is expected to address various allegations that have been made against him by previous witnesses who have testified before the committee.

    On July 25, the Speaker of Parliament appointed Samuel Atta-Akyea, the Member of Parliament for Abuakwa South, as the chairperson of a 7-member ad-hoc committee tasked with investigating a recently leaked controversial audio recording. This audio recording revealed clandestine discussions about plotting the removal of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).

    The audio, which exposed an alleged conspiracy involving a senior police officer and a prominent member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to oust IGP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, sparked a debate in Parliament. The Minority called for a forensic audit in response to the revelation.

    As part of its proceedings, the committee has heard testimonies from individuals such as the former Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP, Daniel Bugri Naabu, as well as COP Alex Mensah and Superintendent George Asare, both of whom have made several allegations against their superior, the IGP.
