- COP Bright Oduro was asked to proceed on leave earlier this week
- Kennedy Agyapong insists that his allegations of forceful land acquisitions against Oduro are valid
- He states he is not afraid any legal action against him as that will further expose the truth
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene-Agyapong has maintained his claims against the sacked director of the Criminal Investigations Department, COP Bright Oduro.
Mr. Agyapong insisted that his allegations against the former CID director were valid, as there was proof that he was influencing the activities of rampaging landguards in the country.
He had earlier accused the former CID boss of using languards to threaten and assault legal owners of lands and properties, in order to claim and use them for his own gain.
In a report by MyNewsGh.com, the politician was speaking on Oman FM, when he said he had the documents to prove the extent of the former CID boss’s illegal dealings.
Bright Oduro was asked to proceed on leave Monday by the Police Council, even though he was expected to retire in January 2018.
He had allegedly hinted of a lawsuit against the New Patriotic Party stalwart, who he blames for destroying a hard-earned reputation.
However, Mr. Agyapong remains unperturbed by the threats, stating that a lawsuit would further reveal the corrupt activities of the sacked CID director.
Kennedy Agyapong further stated: “Today I want to tell Bright Oduro that there was an investigation before he was asked to proceed on leave. The young police officers whose lives were in danger approached me and told me that if my party will be able to protect them and be able to deal with the land guard menace in Accra then we should come to East Legon police station and demand for the docket of all the land cases and we will see those behind.”
Meanwhile, ACP Maame Yaa Addo-Danquah has been named the new CID director.
