ACP Addo Danquah confirmed CID boss

Her promotion comes after she was made the acting director of the CID following the firing of the substantive CID boss, Bright Oduro.

Similarly, the Acting Director General/ICT, DCOP/Mr Anthony Tennyson Aidoo, has been confirmed as the substantive Director-General.

A statement issued on Wednesday, 24 January and signed by the IGP, said: "DCOP/Mr Anthony Tennyson Aidoo Ag Director General/ICT Is hereby confirmed Director General ICT. DCOP/Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, Ag Director-General CID is hereby confirmed Director-General /CID."

Her elevation to acting CID boss has drawn fury from a section of Ghanaians who believed she covered up corruption allegation made by A Plus against President Akufo-Addo’s deputy chiefs of staff: Francis Asenso-Boakye and Abu Jinapor.

A financial analyst Joe Jackson has described her appointment as the acting CID boss as "untidy."
