The then Accra Regional Police Command led by COP George Akuffo Dampare was in charge of investigations into the murder case of the Abuakwa North MP J.B Danquah, who was stabbed to death at his Shiashie residence in Accra.
The social and political commentator, Kevin Ekow Baido Taylor, has said that he wants the new IGP Cop George Akuffo Dampare to start his new job on a clean slate, so he should speak on the allegations by Kennedy Agyapong that he had evidence about the murder of J. B. Danquah.
According to Kevin Taylor, he has heard that Cop George Dampare has been appointed as the acting IGP. He said from his profile, he is young and has proven that he deserves that position. To have a young IGP is good. He needs to prove to Ghanaians that he is not like the old horses who came before him.
He revealed that Cop George Dampare’s name has appeared in several allegations by Kennedy Agyapong. At this point, he needs to come out and clear the air.
If he doesn’t want people to think that this position was given to him as compensation for suppressing evidence about the murder of J.B. Danquah, then he needs to come out and clear the air.
He stated that we all didn’t know a lot about Cop George Dampare. The person who mentioned his name in one of his allegations involving the murder of J.B. Danquah as having evidence was Kennedy Agyapong.
So, Dampare needs to clear this thing. If not, it will be very tough for people to believe and trust that he can do the job well.
“I would like you to succeed, but until you make Ghanaian know that what Kennedy Agyapong said about you is all lies, that hurdle will keep hanging around you that you had evidence about J.B. Danquah’s death.
I am expecting Cop George Dampare to come out and deny this allegation by Kennedy Agyapong. I want him to start this job on a clean slate. I want you to let people know that you are coming to serve Ghana and that you are not being compensated for withholding evidence in the murder of J B. Danquah.”
He also said that, If Kennedy Agyapong can sit on national television and mention his name as the police officer who was involved in the investigation, and later left the investigation, and went on transfer while withholding information, It’s going to hunt him as the new IGP.
He added that Cop George Dampare shouldn’t push this under the carpet. He should speak on it to clear the mindset of Ghanaians that he knows the person who killed J.B. Danquah.
