The Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, COP Bright Oduro, has been asked to proceed on leave.

Sources at the Ghana Police Headquarters say he is due for retirement on January 2018 and that it was unlikely for him to be recalled from leave.

His deputy, ACP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo Danquah, who was embroiled in the controversial A Plus saga, has been directed to act as the new CID boss.

Sources say his ouster from office is due to several petitions against him in connection with land related issues.

He is accused of giving cover to deadly land guards, especially in the Greater Accra Region and that his continuous stay in office will hinder plans by the Greater Accra Regional Police command to clampdown on land guards menace in the region.

ACP Addo Danquah and ACP Peter Gyimah, another deputy CID boss, are said to be in pole position to replace COP Bright Oduro.
