A Parliamentary committee investigated a leaked tape involving senior police officers allegedly planning to oust the Inspector-General of Police (IGP). They found that two officers, Supt. George Lysander Asare and Supt. Emmanuel Eric Gyebi, lied under oath during their testimony. The committee accused them of undermining Parliament’s authority and recommended them to be referred to the Privileges Committee for further action.

Initially, Supt. Gyebi denied speaking directly to Chief Bugri Naabu on the phone. However, he later admitted to it after Naabu presented a longer version of the tape containing their conversation. Similarly, Supt. Asare initially denied being present during a phone call between Gyebi and Naabu, but later changed his statement.

The committee deemed their actions as contempt of Parliament and suggested they face significant penalties for their behavior. The investigation stemmed from a leaked recording where the officers were allegedly discussing plans to challenge the IGP’s authority, recorded by Naabu who was concerned by their conduct.
