The recent developments involving the Inspector General of Police, Dr. Akufo Dampare, and his interactions with the Ad-hoc committee of Parliament have sparked quite a conversation. The center of the controversy is a leaked tape that has put his position in jeopardy.
A UK-based lawyer, Kofi Opare Hagan Esq, has taken to social media to express his views on the matter. According to him, the IGP has displayed excellent acting skills throughout the ordeal. This statement comes after the IGP shared his distress over the leaked tape’s impact on his family and close ones during the committee hearing.
The tape’s release followed allegations by the former Director General (Technical) of the Ghana Police Service, COP Mensah. He suggested that the low morale among the police force was due to dissatisfaction with the IGP’s leadership style. Furthermore, it was insinuated that the IGP himself had given permission for the recording and subsequent leak of the tape.
During his turn to address the committee on Tuesday (12 September), Dampare refuted the allegations, stating that there was no evidence to back them up.
However, after observing the IGP’s performance in front of the committee, Lawyer Opare suggested that the IGP’s acting skills surpass those of the actor, Van Vicker. He stated, “The IGP is at least a better actor than Van Vicker.”
