Former Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), COP Bright Oduro, has said a directive that abruptly asked him to retire was unfair.

COP Oduro was abruptly asked to proceed on leave last Friday, October 13, 2017, three months ahead of his retirement on January 3, 2018.

He reveals that he was only "ordered to hand over," by the Inspector-General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu.

"[The IGP] did not give any reason. He only said it was a Cabinet decision that I leave office," said COP Oduro.

He has been replaced by Deputy Director of CID, Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, whose tenure starts Wednesday, October 18, 2017.

In an exclusive interview he granted to Joy News, Mr. Oduro said the order asking him to proceed on leave connotes wrongdoing, a situation he says causes him extreme discontent.
