Arrested and bailed Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has said he has always considered COP Kofi Boakye and IGP (Retd) Oppong Boanuh as the best gentlemen to lead the Police service instead of “incompetent” current IGP Dampare.
Abronye DC was put before an Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday after being charged with publication of false news, offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace.
Mr. Baffoe claimed that the 2020 flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, had planned to stage a coup against the government. But he believes his arrest goes beyond what he is alleged to have said.
Popularly known as Abronye DC, Kwame Baffoe alleged that the current Inspector-General of Police (IGP) caused his arrest to settle personal scores because he exposed the IGP’s incompetent handling of the murder investigation involving late MP for Abuakwa J.B Dankwa Adu.
Speaking in two separate interviews on Asempa FM and Angel FM, the NPP executive who has vowed to keep speaking his mind said he supported former IGP Oppong Boanuh as against Dampare.
“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 NPP Bono Regional Chairman stated.
So personal were the issues against him, he revealed, that even before he wrote his statement, the police charges against him were already typed and waiting.
“The police had my charges before I wrote my statement but I don’t mind because I sleep comfortably in the police cells,” he revealed.
On Angel FM, Mr. Abronye said arresting his body without arresting his soul is zero.
“If you arrest me without my soul you did nothing”.
He revealed that he has preferred his “own brother” COP Nathan Kofi Boakye to become IGP because he is very qualified and a solid gentleman.
“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.”
