Akufo-Addo names new IGP


 Kudalor Igp

President Nana Akufo-Addo will name a new police chief today following the retirement of Inspector General of Police John Kudalor.
  Mr Kudalor was at the presidency on Wednesday, 25 January to bid farewell to the president.
Nana Akufo-Addo, according to sources within the presidency, is likely to name COP David Asante Apeatu, a former Director General of the Ghana Police CID, as Mr Kudalor's successor.

  Meanwhile, the interdicted Director General in charge of Human Resource Development at the Ghana Police Service, COP Patrick Timbillah has been fired in connection with the 2015 police recruitment scandal, has learnt.
  Even though Public Affairs Director of the Police Service, Supt. Cephas Arthur could not confirm that information when called, he said: "I suspect some communication may have been sent to him, but I cannot confirm the details."
COP Timbillah's sacking follows the completion of investigations into the scam in which he and a few other officers were implicated in March 2015 following which an internal service inquiry was started against him.

  Immediately after his arrest and interdiction, David Nenyi Ampah-Bennin, director general in charge of public affairs of the Ghana Police Service, told the media that investigations into the affair could be over in about a week, after which prosecutions would begin. It has, however, taken almost two years for the investigations and report to be ready.
  Seven people were arrested by the police in connection with the scam.
  They include two police officers Constable Ruth Agyiri, 27, of the Central Police Station in Koforidua, who allegedly swindled a victim of GHS1500, and Corporal Gideon Sarpong.
The others are a radio presenter of Silver Radio Amos Brown, 40, who, according to Ampah-Bennin, has taken various sums from over 40 persons to enlist them in the police service; Richard Harrison, 30, who lured others for over GHS4200, and a pastor Paul Danso.
