A massive shakeup in the police administration has reshuffled Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to the Director-General of Welfare.
The restructuring of the Ghana Police Service also saw the DCOP David Senanu Eklu, the Director-General of the Public Affairs Department moved to the Police Hospital as an Administrator.
A number of other senior officers were changed in James Oppong-Boanuh, the Inspector General of Police’s letter issued on January 3.
There have been lots of calls for the head COP Tiwaa Addo-Daquah after what many have said is her abysmal handling of the case of the missing Takoradi girls.
In September last year, the families of the four girls, who police declared dead called for her to be sacked citing her failure to help rescue the girls from suspected kidnappers.
The family also wanted the National Security Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah and Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, to step down.
The call follows the confirmation by a police-sponsored DNA test that some bones found at the home of one of the key suspect show they girls were dead.
Also, a member of Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee, Helen Adwoa Ntoso making similar calls said “the security capo who came to inform us they knew where the girls were must resign,” referring to press conference addressed by the CID boss.
She further called on the security to apologise to the state for the false hopes they gave to Ghanaians.
In response, COP Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah said her resignation will not automatically resolve the issue and bring back the girls.
Speaking at a programme organised by Commonwealth Africa in Accra, she said her focus is working to “bring whatever situation that we have at a very conclusive stage not to waste your time thinking you want to resign or not.”
