Former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, has said he was responsible for the audio containing alleged plans by the government to remove IGP George Akuffo Dampare.
Bugri Naabu also said his voice was in the recording but denied leaking the audio to the public.
Appearing before a parliamentary committee set up to probe the tape on Monday, August 28, 2023, he noted that he had some help setting the recording up because of his challenges with technology.
