Inspector General of Police (IGP) George Akuffo Dampare has expressed the pain and distress caused to his family and loved ones by the allegations contained in the leaked audio saga and the subsequent developments.

Former Director-General (Technical) of the Ghana Police Service, COP Mensah, had earlier stated that morale in the Ghana Police Service is low due to the unhappiness of many personnel with the management style of the IGP.

he also said the IGP was the worst IGP in Ghana's history.

However, COP Mensah denied he was plotting to remove the IGP from office.

During his appearance before a parliamentary committee of inquiry on Tuesday, September 12, IGP Dampare addressed the allegations and the impact they have had on him and his family.

He stated that these "wild allegations without a shred of evidence" have caused significant pain to him, his family, including his wife and children, as well as to his command, leadership team, and the thousands of police officers who appreciate the efforts to transform the organisation into the best institution in the country.

The parliamentary committee is conducting an investigation into a leaked audio recording involving discussions about the possible removal of the IGP by three police officers and the former Northern Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu.
