Plot to remove IGP: COP George Alex Mensah, 2 other officers appear before committee.

The Director General of Operations for the Ghana Police Service, COP George Alex Mensah has appeared before the Ad-Hoc Committee today.

The committee was set up by Parliament to investigate an alleged plot to oust Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo-Dampare.

COP Mensah is expected to appear with two other colleagues.

This follows claims by the Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP, Daniel Bugri Naabu, that COP George Alex Mensah is the senior police officer heard on the leaked audio.

Addressing the Committee on Monday, Bugri Naabu said his decision to record the conversation about the proposed plot was to safeguard the interest of his party.

Mr Naabu, who confirmed the authenticity of the secret tape, indicated that his plan was to forward the tape to President Akufo-Addo.

While defending his recording of the conversation, Bugri Naabu also mentioned that Commander Asare, COP Mensah and Supt Gyebi were the personnel who had the discussion with him about the IGP.

Subsequently, the three are to appear before the committee.
During the hearing, lawyers for the police officer raised some objections.

The lawyers said some of the committees have made prejudicial comments and also need the audio in advance in other for them to respond to the questions.

The Committee is to submit its report on September 10.

However, the members of the committee have denied making such prejudicial comments
