Superintendent George Asare’s legal team has submitted a formal request to the parliamentary committee overseeing the investigation into the alleged plot to remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to invite three witnesses.
In their statement, the lawyers have outlined their intention to present evidence that supports some of the claims made in an audio recording.
“We wish to call the following persons to assist the committee on some matters: Ishaw Yakubu aka Boyo and Samuel Ofori all of Dzorwulu, Accra would be testifying on the following matters:
a. The award of a contract to Bugri Naabu and the payments of Kickbacks by Dr. Akuffo Dampare
b. The role played by Bugri Naabu during the period leading to the appointment of Dr. Akuffo Dampare as the 1GP
c. Unauthorized monthly payment made by the Pay Master, COP Nketiah Frimpong on behalf of Dr. Akuffo Dampare to Bugri Naabu, Samuel Ofori and Boyoo.”
“To ease the work of the committee, the above-named witnesses shall provide a joint statement to the committee,” the lawyers stated.
They again said ASP Alhaji Bawah Abdul Jalil of Accra would be testifying on the Conversion of the Police Intelligence Directorate into a personal Unit of Dr Akuffo Dampare and the extra-judicial killings being committed by the PID upon the directions of Dr Akuffo Dampare
The lawyers indicated that they would be grateful if the above-named persons could be invited by the committee to testify.
“We have the instructions of our client to direct the service of the summons to these intended witnesses,” they added.
