Why DCOP Opare Addo was removed from office – Albert Kan-Dapaah explains.

Albert Kan-Dapaah, National Security Minister, has been explaining to Parliament why DCOP (rtd) Ayensu Opare Addo was removed from office as the Ashanti Regional Security Liaison Officer.


The minister was in Parliament to respond to questions from MPs on why the former police officer’s two-year contract was terminated abruptly.

Kan-Dapaah, first of all, debunked the description of the National Security Officers as members of the NPP vigilante group, Delta Force.


He explained that DCOP Opare Addo was removed from office by men from the headquarters of National Security because he was obstructing the work of his successor.

He said DCOP Opare Addo’s two-year contract was cancelled midway by the National Security Coordinator but he refused to leave office.

“He was given a two-year contract to serve as Ashanti Regional Security Liaison Officer after the expiration of an initial two-year contract. His new appointment took effect from January 1, 2020, and was to expire on December 31, 2020.
