Retiring James Oppong-Boanuh appointed Deputy IGP

The Inspector General of Police in September 2018 appointed James Oppong-Boanuh as new Deputy Inspector- General of Police; who was on the verge of retiring from the service; a move that was widely criticized.

Oppong-Boanuh’s contract was however extended by the president Nana Akufo-Addo by one year.

Sources within the police service say he personally requested for an extension of his contract through the Interior Ministry, to enable him assist the IGP , although this is not the normal practice in the service.
