The first witness at the center of the IGP leaked tape Chief Bugri Naabu maintains that he never lied before the Ad Hoc Committee, and he has been vindicated by the evidence made available to the Committee.

According to him he does not regret recording his interaction with some senior police officers in the country who were purported to be planning the sacking of the Inspector General of Police Dr. George Akufo Dampare.

The former Northern Regional chairman of the NPP and first witness in the IGP leaked tape saga noted that, contrary to the testimonies given by the other accused witnesses before the committee, the contents in the leaked audio are genuine and completely implicates the officers mentioned therein.

On Thursday, October 11, 2023, the committee discharged all witnesses in order to analyze the evidence for drafting its final report for onward submission to plenary.

Mr. Bugri Naabu spoke after he was discharged by the committee and added to have that kind of thing going on in the police service under the current administration it was dangerous so he submitted the tape to the President.

He noted that he does not regret doing what he did by recording them.
