"EOCO boss begged A-Plus to drop charges against Asenso-Boakye, Abu Jinapor" - Martin Kpebu alleges

Private legal practitioner, Martin Kpebu has sharply criticized the Executive Director of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, alleging serious misconduct in her handling of a corruption case.

Kpebu claims that when musician and activist Kwame Obeng Asare, known as A Plus, presented corruption allegations against Francis Asenso-Boakye, the Minister of Roads and Highways, and Samuel Abu Jinapor, the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, to EOCO, Maame Tiwaa did not pursue the case with due diligence.

Instead, Kpebu asserts that the EOCO boss urged A Plus to withdraw the allegations to avoid tarnishing the reputation of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Speaking on an Accra-based television station, Lawyer Kpebu expressed his dismay over what he perceives as a deliberate attempt by Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah to protect the President and his appointees rather than addressing the corruption allegations.

"We will never forget that Madame Tiwaa has such a bad profile of protecting President Akufo-Addo and his appointees. She tossed the case just to protect the president. What's the profile? Number one, Asenso-Boakye and Abu Jinapor were reported to her by Kwame A Plus. She took a phone and begged A Plus to drop the charges. Because that corruption case will embarrass Akufo-Addo,” he stated.

It is important to note that A Plus has a history of lodging corruption complaints against Asenso-Boakye and Abu Jinapor with various anti-corruption agencies.

The allegations raised by Kpebu have sparked significant controversy, raising questions about the integrity of EOCO’s leadership and their commitment to fighting corruption within the government.
