The presidency has appointed COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah as the new Executive Director of the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO).
Sources at the office of the president familiar with the development said the top police chief’s appointment took effect on January 5, 2022.
She replaces Steve Raymond Dapaah-Addo who was appointed in July last year as the Director-General of the investigative agency.
Until her latest reassignment, COP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah served as the Director-General of the Police Professional and Standards Bureau of the Ghana Police Service.
Her tenure as Director General of the police CID saw many unresolved criminal cases including that of the kidnapping of the three Takoradi girls who were later found dead.
She was the subject of intense criticism because of her handling of the case, and faced numerous calls for her resignation while being accused of botching the investigation.
