Corporal Dianatah Nicodemus, the Policeman who shockingly resigned ahead of the 2016 general elections to campaign for then Presidential candidate Nana Akufo-Addo has been gainfully employed by the state, Acting General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) John Boadu has revealed.

Speaking to Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Starr FM, John Boadu refused to disclose where exactly the said policeman is working, except to say he’s working within the “system”.

It is believed the Police Officer is working within the State security setup based on his competence.

Corporal Dianatah Nicodemus, who was with the New Juaben Municipal Police Command in the Eastern region in a daring move, resigned in January 2016 to devote his time and energy to support the Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party ahead of the presidential elections.

He tendered in his resignation letter to then IGP, John Kudalor who in accordance with the Police Service Act, approved the resignation of the young law enforcer. After his resignation was granted by the IGP, Corporal Nicodemus joined the campaign activities of the NPP mostly in Ashanti and Northern regions.
