DCOP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah has been confirmed as the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Police Service.
This was contained in a communique dated January 24, 2018, from the Inspector General of Police, David Asante Apeatu.
DCOP Addo-Danquah, then with the rank of ACP, was directed to act as the Director General of the CID after DCOP Bright Oduro, had been relieved of the position in October 2017.
DCOP Addo-Danquah controversy
DCOP Addo-Danquah, was also enveloped in controversy when she was accused by Kwame Asare Obeng, also known as A-Plus, of trying to cover-up some malfeasance in the probe of President Akufo-Addo’s two Deputy Chiefs of Staff.
In an audio said to be a leaked recording of a conversation between A-Plus and ACP Addo-Danquah, the police officer was heard advising A-Plus to deny the allegations because he is a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The Police officer was accused of misconduct in the manner she handled the investigation, per the details of the telephone conversation that appeared unprofessional and compromised.
She later claimed that the tape was doctored to portray her in a bad light, a claim A-Plus denied.
DCOP Anthony Tennyson Aidoo was also confirmed as the Director General of ICT in the same communique.
