The Parliamentary Committee tasked to probe an alleged plot to remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP) will continue sitting today, Monday, September 4.

This will be the fourth day of the public sitting which started on Monday, August 28, with former NPP Northern Regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu.

The subject is a leaked audio in which police officers were heard conspiring to find a replacement for the current IGP, Dr George Akuffo Dampare.

The three police officers supposedly linked to the tape have been invited to assist in the Ad-hoc committee’s probe.

On Thursday, August 31, three police officers testified before the committee including Supt Emmanuel Gyebi who took the stand first.

He was followed by COP George Alex Mensah who expressed reservations about the IGP’s action which he says will not augur well for the service as a whole.

He said with the IGP at the helm of affairs, the Service is headed in the wrong direction.

“Honourable member and honorable chair, what I said yesterday if you give me the opportunity today, I will say it again. For me, for the 31 years I have been in the service, he is the worst IGP ever,” he said.

Today, the committee is expected to interrogate more witnesses.
