Former Northern Regional Chairman for the governing NPP Bugri Naabu has said he forwarded the recording he had with the police officer on the removal of Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare to President Akufo-Addo.  

Responding to questions during Parliament’s seven-member committee investigating the leaked tape on the removal of the IGP, Mr. Bugri Naabu he shared the tape recording with President Akufo-Addo so he can listen for himself.

“Commander Asare and COP Mensah said currently all the Commissioners at the Police Headquarters are all NDC and we will see whether we will win this election and we lost it. So that alone I was a bit worried,” he narrated.

When asked whether he was not scared by the discussions on the IGP’s relationship with the army, Mr. Naabu said “That was the reason why I did the tape and gave the President the tape. So that he will also hear directly and not from me, which I did,” he added.  

However, Mr. Bugri Naabu has officially confirmed the authenticity of the content of a leaked audio tape which had him in a conversation with some police officers plotting the removal of Dr. George Akuffo Dampare as IGP.

Mr. Naabu further admitted he recorded the interaction as he gave details how the said Commander Asare contacted him to get the IGP out and put Commissioner Mensah in place.
