Deputy Commissioner, Georgina Opoku Amankwaah and Chief Accountant Kwaku Owusu Agyei-Larbi are assisting the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) in unraveling the truth about the matter.
Head of Public Affairs at the EC, Eric Kofi Dzakpaso who confirmed this on Accra-based Joy Fm, indicate that their compulsory leave is just to allow for investigations into the allegations leveled by some staff of the commission.
