The Ghana Police Service has suspended the interdiction of the three police officers in the leaked audio tape alleged to be a plot to remove the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare.
The three officers, Commissioner of Police (COP) Mr. George Alex Mensah, Superintendent Mr. Emmanuel Eric Gyebi and Superintendent Mr. George Lysander Asare were interdicted in connection to the audio tape, which has become a subject matter of investigation by Parliament. According to the statement, their interdiction will make way for disciplinary proceedings into their conduct in line with Police Service regulations.
However, in a new statement signed by the Director for Public Affairs, ACP Grace Ansah-Akrofi, the interdiction of these officers has been suspended. According to the statement, “the Police Administration would commence disciplinary proceedings into their conduct upon completion of the ongoing probe by parliament.”
It explained that the decision has been taken ”in order not to prejudice the ongoing probe.”
