Three police officers implicated in the leaked audio recording that captured an alleged plot to oust the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, appeared before the ad-hoc parliamentary committee probing the issue on Thursday, August 31.
The officers are COP George Alex Mensah, Superintendent Asare, and Superintendent Emmanuel Gyebi. They were invited to appear before the committee after former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, confirmed the authenticity of the audio recording and named them as the individuals he had met to discuss the removal of the IGP.
The officers denied any wrongdoing and said they were only discussing the possibility of removing the IGP if he was found to be incompetent. The committee is expected to continue its investigations and make a report to Parliament.
The leaked audio recording has caused a great deal of public interest and speculation about the motives of those involved. It has also raised questions about the state of Ghana's police force and the extent to which political interference can affect its operations.
The committee's investigation is ongoing and it is not yet clear what the findings will be. However, the case has already had a significant impact on Ghana's political landscape and it is likely to continue to be a major talking point in the months to come.
