The Police Service has taken decisive action by interdicting three high-ranking officers, including Chief Superintendent (COP) Alex Mensah, Superintendent (Supt.) George Asare, and Superintendent (Supt.) Augustine Gyebi.
The move comes in response to the circulation of a leaked audio recording allegedly involving discussions about the removal of the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
The leaked tape, which has been widely shared on social media and other platforms, reportedly contains conversations among the three senior police officers discussing plans and strategies related to the potential removal of the current IGP.
The authenticity of the recording is currently under investigation, but its public dissemination prompted swift action from the Police Administration.
A memo from the police on Thursday read “The Police Service has interdicted Commissioner Mr. George Alex Mensah, Superintendent Mr. Emmanuel Eric Gyebi and Superintendent Mr. George Lysander Asare in connection with the audio tape which has become a subject matter of investigation by Parliament.
“The interdiction is to make way for disciplinary proceedings into their conduct in line with Police Service regulations.”
