The Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu, has elevated the Deputy Director General of the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, to the Director-General position.
This follows the procession on leave by the Director-General Bright Oduro. The crime expert was asked to proceed on leave ahead of his retirement in January, 2018.
He was appointed in January this year. A police wireless message sighted by 3news.com on Tuesday confirmed ACP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah’s new post: “You are to act as DIGENPOL/CID with immediate effect”.
ACP Addo-Danquah’s promotion comes amidst controversy over a leaked audio recording that finds her contradicting investigations of the CID. She has since dismissed the audio as being doctored.
