According to the Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu, he has handed her an indefinite suspension and demanded the Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu to remove her from his office.

Amidu in a letter said the officer in question “continued rudely and very insubordinately and had the impudence to tell me in the presence of the Deputy Special Prosecutor, the Secretary to the Office, the acting Head of the Investigations Division, and a senior officer of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) that I had no right to address her as a Sergeant when she had been promoted to an Inspector.”

Last week, it has been revealed that 25 cases are currently at the office of the Special Prosecutor.

This list even though a lot have cast doubt on it, Martin Amidu indicated in a document submitted to the IGP over the incident said the list was fake and a creation by Detective Inspector Yaa Boakyewaa.

Amidu’s letter to Sgt. Yaa Boakyewaa requested her to explain why she shouldn’t be reprimanded for her conduct and added: “none of the files in the memorandum were petitions submitted to this Office as you falsely and maliciously presented them to be.”

  1. Madam:
    Just plead you’re sorry to have leaked the important information. In other words you are a snitch.This is a very very serious offence. You need to be careful. People are not going to take you serious. And worst they are not going to feel comfortable in you presence.
    Most important however, if you intend to make the SECURITY system your career, you will be expected to show some respect to your senior officers. If you’re disrespecting Mr. Amidu, then you must as well pack your uniform and badges and leave. So if you are so disrespectful how did you earn your promotion.
