The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, has categorically denied any involvement in plotting a secret recording with the former NPP Northern Regional Chairman, Daniel Bugri Naabu.
The leaked tape probe has garnered substantial public attention over the last few weeks.
Addressing the Parliamentary Committee probing the audio on Tuesday, September 12, the IGP refuted the allegations that he was part of a conspiracy to secretly record conversations of the three implicated police officers – COP Alex Mensah, Superintendent George Asare, and Superintendent Emmanuel Eric Gyebi – and Bugri Naabu.
The IGP emphasized his commitment to upholding the law and maintaining the integrity of the Ghana Police Service. He expressed his willingness to cooperate fully with the ongoing investigation, vowing to provide any necessary information or assistance to uncover the truth behind the leaked tape.
Bugri Naabu, a former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has been a central figure in the leaked tape scandal.
The leaked audio recordings purportedly contain conversations involving him and other high-ranking police officials, over a plot to remove the IGP to help the NPP rig the 2024 polls.
The IGP also added that some wild allegations made against him by the three police officers have caused severe pain to him and his family.
COP Mensah told the committee when he appeared that the IGP plotted the recording of the audio with Bugri Naabu. He added that his information indicated that the IGP had the full unedited recording.
