The Criminal Investigation Department of Ghana Police Service has described as baseless and unsubstantiated allegation of corruption leveled against two Deputy Chiefs of Staff by Kwame Asare Obeng aka A Plus.

The musician accused the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, Messers Francis Asenso-Boakye and Samuel Abu Jinapor of corruption and thievery.

The Police CID commenced investigations into the allegations. A Plus was invited and he denied ever accusing the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff of thievery but maintained the allegation of corruption.

The police in a statement said the basis of his allegation was that the two government appointees had interfered in the management of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

“That following a petition by Unibank Ghana Limited to the effect that the management of Korle Bu had abrogated an existing MOU with them without any reason and that the Korle Bu had not treated them fairly, Messers Asenso-Boakye and Jinapor among others intervened to seek clarity from the hospital’s management regarding the said petition,” the statement said.

“That their intervention was transparent, borne out of the protection of the public interest and consistent with their duties as chiefs of staff,” the statement added.

The statement said at the conclusion of investigations, the allegation of corruption was without credibility.
