The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, has lamented the adverse impact of the accusations made against him by some senior officers implicated in the plot to oust him.
Dr Dampare disclosed this in his opening remarks before Parliament’s ad-hoc committee currently investigating a leaked tape plotting his removal from office.
COP George Alex Mensah and Superintendent George Lysander Asare made numerous allegations against the IGP when they appeared before the committee.
Supt Asare also accused the IGP of plotting the audio recording when he appeared before the committee.
But the IGP, describing the officers as his brothers, said their claims are without basis.
“They came up with wild allegations that touched my person and the entire police administration that I lead and the entirety of the police service without a shred of evidence. Those wild allegations without a shred of evidence have brought a lot of pain to myself, my family across the country and especially my wife and children.
“They came to make all these allegations in order to cover up, probably the shame associated with what they got themselves involved with in the first place. And I, an innocent person focusing on my job, working with my team to keep the country safe, have been asked to come and answer to these allegations,” he bemoaned.
