The Chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee of Parliament investigating the leaked audio tape on a plot to oust the IGP Dr George Akufo Dampare has denied allegation of bias leveled against him by Lead Counsel for the IGP Mr. Kwame Gyan.

According to him all the principal witnesses were present at the Committee hearing and the issue of the IGP leaving a bit early has to do with health issue.

He expressed disappointment about the allegation and said he has rather handled the affairs of the committee well.
Samuel Atta Akyea made the comment on Tuesday, October 10, 2023 after an in- camera hearing of the committee attended by the IGP, Chief Bugri Naabu and three Senior Police Officers who are witnesses before the committee.

Responding to a question from the media on why he Samuel Atta Akyea prevented members of the Police Management Board (POMAB) from sitting in today’s hearing, Samuel Atta Akyea said the in-camera hearing was meant only for the witnesses and members of the Committee.

And Ghanaians appreciate the work he is doing he cannot manufacture anything against the IGP and the work they are doing is being recorded and transcribed.
