Deputy Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has said a secret tape making rounds on social media indicating that she covered up for the two Deputy Chiefs-of-Staff during investigations into corruption allegations against them has been doctored.
According to her, popular and controversial musician Kwame A Plus’ move is a deliberate attempt to destroy her reputation.
The CID recently cleared the two, Francis Asenso-Boakye and Samuel Abu Jinapor, of any wrongdoing after the President referred the matter to them for investigations.
However, the audiotape in question, which has been widely circulated on social media, suggests there was a cover-up.
In that audiotape, a female interlocutor is heard telling a male character on the other end of the line that: “…As for the corruption aspect of it, from what you said and what we’ve gone to confirm, you wouldn’t be too far from right to say that this is what happened, but we need to manage… the people are your people. We need to find the best way to ensure that Korle Bu works the way we all want it to work.
But ACP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah in a statement intercepted by Adomonline.com said though she had a 59 seconds phone conversation with A Plus, she never stated that the report was concocted to clear the two deputy Chiefs of Staff.
“I wish to categorically and emphatically state that I have never intimated to A Plus in any conversation whatsoever that I believed that his allegations of corruption against the two senior government officials had been confirmed following our investigations”.
