The Inspector General of Police (IGP) George Akuffo Dampare has disclosed that the allegations levelled against him by fellow police officials and some members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) have brought ‘a lot of pain’ to him and his family.
Dampare is at the centre of an ad-hoc committee probing the plot to remove the Inspector General of Police following the leak of secret audio a few weeks ago.
He appeared before the committee on Tuesday (September 12) to testify in the case, where he stated that the allegations against him have no shred of evidence and that he is innocent. He said his wife and children have rather suffered the consequences of the plot against him.
“Those wild allegations without a shred of evidence,” he told the committee, “have brought a lot of pain to myself, my family, and the entire country, especially my wife and children.”
According to George Dampare, the persons involved, especially COP George Alex Mensah and NPP’s Bugri Naabu, who appeared before the committee to pass certain comments about his performance in office did that just to cover their shame.
“They came and made all these allegations in an attempt to cover up, probably the shame associated with what they got themselves involved in. And I, an innocent person, focusing on my job and working in concept with my team and all commands across the country to keep the nation safe and promote peace within it.”
He further stated that the allegation are baseless and unfair to him.
“I have been asked to come and answer to these allegations, which are wild and baseless. I feel in my spirit that this is simply not fair.”
