Dampare made the Police detain me because I failed to support him — Abronye

Bono Regional chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe widely known as Abronye DC has hit back at IGP Dampare after court granted him bail.

Abronye was arrested by the Accra Regional Police Command after he alleged that former President John Mahama is planning with terrorist group AI Qaeda to stage a coup in Ghana. He was detained after an invitation to assist investigation.

According to him, his arrest and detention by the police were just a chance the Inspector General of Police Dr. Akuffo Addo wanted to use to sanction him for failing to support him during his appointment as the IGP.

Prior to his appointment as IGP, Abronye argued that Dampare wasn’t the best person to lead the police following how he handled the murder of their very own JB Danquah.

He said: “I didn’t support this IGP because I see him as incompetent due to his handling of late JB Danquah Adu’s murder case.


“The police had my charges before I wrote my statement but I don’t mind because I sleep comfortably in the police cells,”

He continued that the police led by IGP Dampare only arrested his body not his soul and that sums up to nothing.

“If you arrest me without my soul you did nothing,” he stated.

To him, COP Kofi Boakye was the right person for the IGP position instead of Dampare.

He concluded: “Kofi Boakye… ooh he is qualified to be IGP… He is a perfect gentleman. He is a fine man…. Go to law school and see. Out of 7 courses he topped all. He is good just the talking that it doesn’t go well but come to the writing and see.”
