"I feel no hatred, pain or whatever towards them. They are my brothers and their children are my kids.”
“As the Christian that I am, forgiveness is the medicine… as far as they are concerned what whatever they have done, it is not an issue to me,” Dampare added.

Dampare described as the worst IGP

During the hearings, COP Mensah was met with questions about the tenure of IGP Dampare.

YEN.com.gh reported that COP Mensah described Dampare as the worst IGP in the history of Ghana.

“I can tell you that for the 31 years that I have been in the Police Service, this IGP is the worst IGP.

COP Mensah also claimed IGP Dampare was responsible for the recording of the leaked tape and has the original copy.

His claim was backed by Supt Asare, who appeared before the committee on September 4, 2023.

Spiritual attack against Dampare

YEN.com.gh reported that Supt Asare claimed that there were possible spiritual machinations against IGP Dampare.

According to him, the former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, had suggested using a mallam to fight Dampare in the spiritual realm.

“Chief Bugri Naabu insisted that he has to also see some Mallams. He recommended about three, some in the North, and some from his village. It was Chief Bugri Naabu himself who came forth with that suggestion,” Asare testified.

Details of leaked audios

YEN.com.gh reported on the first audio leak, where the officers were heard lobbying for political support to remove Dampare.

The recording, spanning 50 minutes and a transcription, was made public by some media sites.

YEN.com.gh also reported separately that a second leak about the alleged plot against the IGP had images from a video.
