Superintendent Emmanuel Gyebi, one of the senior police officers implicated in a leaked tape plotting the removal of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, has revealed he does not know Bugri Naabu.
The senior police officer is also claiming he has never met the former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party.
He made the remarks when he appeared before
the committee tasked with investigating the leaked tape.
Superintendent Gyebi categorically denied any knowledge of Bugri Naabu, denying the notion that they had worked together on a pre-arranged plot with two other senior police officers to discuss the prospective removal of the IGP with President Nana Akufo-Addo.
According to him, he was not part of the plot hence the submission of Bugri Naabu is false.
He described the claims by Bugri Naabu as “palpable lies”.
What Bugri Naabu Said
Former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, confirmed the validity of the leaked tape suggesting a plan to oust the current Inspector General of Police (IGP) when he appeared before the Committee.
He stated that the meeting took place at his office in Osu even though he could not remember the date of the meeting.
“My voice is there…well one Commander Asare, a police commander, but I don’t know which district or which section he commands, but he introduced himself to me when he came to my office that he was a police commander based at the police headquarters…I asked him where does he know me and he told me that during the time of political campaigns in 2014, 2015, 2016, I used to come to Wa with the President and the Vice President and Alhaji Short I said that if he says that, then it is true.
“Apart from Commander Asare, there was one man who later joined called COP Mensah, but he is on leave now prior to his retirement and he was also part of it, and later one Gyebi who is also a police superintendent at the Police Headquarters, also joined through a phone call,” he said.
