Amid the ongoing parliamentary investigation into an alleged plot involving a prominent New Patriotic Party (NPP) member and senior police officers to remove the current Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akufo Dampare, a viral video has surfaced, shedding light on the matter.
The 8-minute and 9-second video features Superintendent George Asare, one of the senior police officers implicated in the alleged plot, presenting claims and reasons for the IGP’s removal. Former Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP, Alhaji Bugri Naabu, also appears in the video.
In the video, Superintendent George Asare makes several allegations, including the assertion that the IGP was responsible for the NPP’s defeat in the Assin North by-election.
He draws a comparison between his demand for the IGP’s removal and what might have occurred if Aseidu Nketia, the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), had faced a similar scenario within his party involving the IGP.
This video adds a new dimension to the ongoing investigation, providing insight into the motivations and grievances behind the alleged plot to oust the IGP. As the parliamentary probe continues, the content of this video is expected to play a significant role in understanding the intricacies of the case.
The video captures a portion of their conversation:
Police: I said, send this man away. What did you do? The President is aware; they have gone to complain to him.
Bugri: …I am telling you; everything will be okay.
Police: When is he going? He is delaying.
Bugri: Before August.
Police: Why August? What is in August?
Bugri: He said I should bring…
Police: But you haven’t sent them. When is he going? He is delaying. This is not about somebody telling a lie; this is what happened at Assin North.
