Dampare reportedly Sacked from the police service


The Controversy Surrounding the IGP’s Potential Removal

The report of the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akufo Dampare, being asked to proceed on leave has sparked significant controversy and speculation.

According to the Daily Guide report, this decision could be linked to the 2023 leaked tape scandal, which was investigated by a parliamentary committee.

The Leaked Tape Scandal

The parliamentary committee, chaired by Abuakwa South MP Samuel Atta Akyea, investigated a leaked audio recording that implicated senior police officers in a plot to oust the Inspector General of Police.

The committee’s findings have resulted in the recommendation of punitive measures against three officers identified in the tape:

  1. COP Alex George Mensah
  2. Supt. George Lysander Asare
  3. Supt. Emmanuel Eric Gyedi

Allegations of Misconduct

The committee found that the actions of these three officers constitute a significant violation of the police code of conduct and regulations.

They are accused of professional misconduct for engaging in activities outside their official duties that could involve them in political disputes or allow them to misuse their position.

Potential Disciplinary Action

The committee has urged Parliament to communicate these findings to the President, as the Police Service Act grants the president the authority to impose disciplinary sanctions.

The report now awaits President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s decision on the appropriate course of action to address this breach of trust and protocol within the police ranks.

Potential Implications and Unanswered Questions

The potential removal of the Inspector General of Police raises several questions and concerns:

  • What are the specific reasons behind the decision to ask Dr. Dampare to proceed on leave?
  • How will this impact the ongoing operations and leadership of the Ghana Police Service?
  • Will the disciplinary actions recommended against the implicated officers be swiftly implemented?
  • What broader implications might this have on the public’s trust in the police force and its leadership?

As the situation continues to unfold, it will be crucial for the government and the police service to address these concerns transparently and ensure that the integrity of the institution is maintained.
