The Executive Director for the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO), COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, has denied ever threatening the family of security analyst Dr. Adam Bonaa.

Dr. Bonaa has alleged that EOCO called his wife to issue threats, charging her to inform her husband to keep her name out of his mouth in his public commentaries.

Speaking on Morning Starr with Naa Dedei Tettey on Wednesday, July 3, 2024, Dr. Bonaa questioned the basis for the call Tiwaa Addo-Danquah placed to his wife instead of dealing with him directly.

“She actually called my wife to threaten my wife, children, and me. I thought that for someone of her caliber, who has been put in charge of a public office, to do that, I found that very appalling, and so I am going to make a formal complaint to the CID for her to be questioned,” Dr. Bonaa stated.

He alleged that the action of the EOCO boss was a result of a petition sent to Parliament to investigate the decision to end investigations into Cecilia Dapaah‘s case following a referral from the Office of the Special Prosecutor.

But reacting to the allegations, COP Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah explained that her call to the wife of Dr. Bonaa was never a threat.

According to the EOCO boss, she only called to inform the wife about some falsehoods being peddled by her husband against her.

She referred to a claim Dr. Bonaa made on Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM that she had led a team of senior police officers to get Asantehene to lobby President Akufo-Addo for the IGP post—a claim she described as a lie, explaining that the officers only donated to the Heal KATH project.

“I called the wife to plead to her conscience as a fellow woman because she wouldn’t be happy if, at the least opportunity Bonaa gets, he will lie about me.”

“I told her that all that he has said doesn’t mean anything to me. But if he doesn’t stop, I will pray. If she doesn’t call her husband (Dr. Bonaa) to order, I will go on my knees, and I will pray to my God, and my God will listen, and she, the wife, might become an innocent victim. Because when I pray with an open heart and I tell God that this man is hurting me because he is lying about me, my God that I serve will listen to me,” COP Tiwaa explained.

According to her, contrary to the claim by Dr. Bonaa, she is always ready to face Parliament whenever called upon during the probe into the Cecilia Dapaah petition.

She charged the security analyst to stop running to the media and face her over the issues.

“I am always prepared and ready to face Parliament because it will be an opportunity to educate people like Bonaa on the mandate of EOCO. Stop running to the media and face me,” she challenged the security analyst.
