Samuel Atta Akyea, the head of the committee investigating the leaked recording involving a plan to remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP), stated that Daniel Bugri Naabu, the former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), acknowledging the audio’s authenticity is a significant acknowledgment in a legal sense.
During his appearance before the parliamentary committee on August 28, 2023, Bugri Naabu openly admitted the validity of the disputed audio. He confirmed that the contentious conversation, causing a stir, did indeed take place between him and three other senior police officers.
In light of Mr. Naabu’s verification, when asked about this in an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Kumericanews on Monday, Mr. Akyea responded, stating, “This constitutes a favorable legal acknowledgment.
What further evidence is necessary? When a person solemnly asserts that the recorded voice is mine, I made the recording, and these are the voices of the individuals accompanying me, I believe this serves as the fundamental basis for our proceedings.
However, Mr. Akyea clarified that the involvement of other individuals on the recording necessitates their presence, as the matters at hand extend beyond solely confirming the tape’s authenticity and its contents acknowledged by Mr. Naabu.
“Our upcoming session is scheduled for Thursday. COP George Alex Mensah, Superintendent Asare, and Superintendent Emmanuel Gyebi are scheduled to attend. These three individuals are slated for Thursday’s session,” he further stated.
