Asare is quoted as saying Dampare, who he earlier described as anti-NPP, is "naturally born bad."
There has been no official response to these leaks by the police service or the IGP.
Details of the earlier leak
In the initial audio leak, a different senior police officer was lobbying for political support to back the removal of Dampare.
This officer is believed to be a Commissioner of Police and was identified as Mensah.
He argued that Dampare was a threat to the NPP winning the 2024 election.
This Commissioner further said that he would be a better candidate for IGP.
The police officer also said an alternative if he was not selected would be to appoint a new IGP who is pro-NPP.
The view from experts
YEN.com.gh analysis noted that some observers believe the purported plot may be a result of the honesty of the IGP.
One expert noted that President Nana Akufo-Addo must respond to leaked audio if there was no plot against the IGP.
Some other analysts have also called for the removal of the police official said to be in the leaked audio recording.
Security analyst Adam Bonaa said the officer who was captured in the leak should be removed immediately and described it as "a day of shame."
