The Ghana Police Service has withdrawn the suspension of three officers in connection with the widely circulated audio tape which is being investigated by parliament.

The officers are Commissioner Mr. George Alex Mensah, Superintendent Mr. Emmanuel Eric Gyebi and Superintendent Mr. George Lysander Asare.

In a statement, the Police administration explained that the withdrawal has become necessary in order not to prejudice the ongoing probe by Parliament.

Background

One of the senior police officers indicted in the plot to get Dr. George Akuffo Dampare removed as IGP has made some explosive claims against the star witness Bugri Naabu accusing him of setting the officers up as a result of a 400,000 cedis contract he has to supply boots to the Ghana Police Service.

Superintendent George Asare at the Committee sitting on Monday refused to speak to aspects of the leaked take where he accuses Executive secretary of President Akufo-Addo, Nana Asante Bediatuo for failing to provide his boss with accurate information about the current IGP.

Supt Asare further revealed he met the former NPP Northern Regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu at his instance.

According to him, his link to Bugri Naabu is through his son Emmanuel Bugri Naabu who is a spiritual father to him.

He further alleged just as COP Mensah did that Mr. Naabu has cut out portions of the audio incriminating to himself claiming he suggested the crusade to get the IGP removed must not only be physical but spiritual as well and consequently asking for some “malams’ to be consulted.
