Police Service grills interdicted DSP Tehoda today

The police officer at the centre of the cocaine-turned-baking soda scandal, DSP Gifty Mawuenyega Tehoda, is expected to face Police Service Enquiry later today.

It would be recalled that the Ghana Police Service in its attempt to clear its name from the cocaine swap scandal held a series of press conferences to give their side of the story to the public.

The Police Service vehemently denied any involvement in the swapping of the cocaine into baking soda, shifting the blame on the courts.

The blame game continued until DSP Tehoda, who happens to be the deputy head at the Commercial Crimes Unit at the Ghana Police Headquarters in Accra, was indicted in a Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) report.

The report said she played a major role in the swapping of the cocaine.

The enquiry is part of the Police administration’s own effort to uncover the truth behind the missing cocaine.**
