COP George Alex Mensah tells Parliament IGP Dampare is destroying police: "Do your own investigations"
“We were all here when Supt Gyebi denied that he never spoke to Bugri Naabu. Bugri Naabu came here to lie,” he said.
“...This tape that was played today, to me was an edited tape, I have not heard any unedited tape for me to talk about as I sit here,” he also said.
“I had a meeting with Bugri Naabu but I don’t remember having any plan to remove the IGP because I don’t remove the IGP,” the police officer added.
In contrast, Bugri Naabu told the same committee that COP Mensah wanted him to discuss the possible removal of Dampare from office.
