The Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Commissioner of Police (COP), Mr Bright Oduro who was sacked has accused Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong and Minister of National Security, Mr Albert Kan Dapaah for masterminding his untimely removal from office.

According to him, he was not given a fair hearing into allegations leveled against him by Kennedy Agyapong of protecting and shielding criminals and land guards at Miotso in Greater Accra.

Mr Agyapong has repeated similar allegations on several media platforms and questioned why Mr Oduro was still at post.

But the sacked CID boss in an interview on Accra-based Oman FM said he was indeed due for retirement on January 3, 2018 but discounted the police administration’s explanation for the new development.

He said he should have normally started his terminal leave on August 30, 2017 but the convention in the Police Service is that, officers stay on till their last day, and that is exactly what had initially been planned for him, until he was surprisingly asked to proceed on leave last Friday without any explanation.

He insisted a number of serving officers have recently similarly stayed on and worked till their final day and so when he expressed his desire to stay on and work beyond August 30, 2017 and no officer was appointed to replace him, it was an acknowledgement he was going to stay till January 3, 3018.

"All other officers who retired recently used their leave to work, why is Bright Oduro alone to proceed on leave and hand over?..."Whoever has taken that decision has not given me a hearing apart from in June thereabout, when I spoke to the deputy Minister of Interior about it, otherwise no one has spoken to me on it," he said.

He added "his removal was premised on "complete misinformation and peddling of falsehood against him."
