-Deputy CID boss has been caught in controversy over a leaked tape suggesting her outfit covered up its investigations into into A-Plus' allegations of corruption against two senior government officials.
-Though she has denied any wrongdoing, Kweku Baako thinks it would be difficult for her to recover
The leaked tape saga would have a very negative far-reaching consequence on the career of Deputy Director of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), ACP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, has observed.
According to Mr Baako, ACP Addo-Danquah's career has been dealt a severe blow with the leaking of the tape and it will be very difficult for her to come back from it.
Key among the immediate negative impact the saga may have on her career is a possible withholding of an impending promotion for her, says the New Crusading Guide boss.
“My own sources indicate she is actually due for promotion. Her promotion is to be sent to the police council for approval. This is a disaster for her…I will be surprised if her promotion goes through”, he explained
The Deputy CID boss has been embroiled in controversy after an audio recording containing a purported conversation between controversial musician Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A-Plus and herself surfaced in the media on Wednesday.
The conversation seemed to suggest that there was a cover up in the CID's investigations into A-Plus' allegations of corruption against the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, Samuel Abu Jinapor and Francis Asenso-Boakye.
Though ACP Addo-Danquah accuses A-Plus of recording and doctoring the alleged tape, and has categorically denied its content, the veteran investigative journalist feels the harm has already been done.
“The person who did the recording and leakage has destroyed her beyond recovery,” he said on Good Morning Ghana show on Metro TV.
Meanwhile, a group calling itself the Dynamic Youth Movement of Ghana (DYMOG) has petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate the two senior government officials over the allegations.
