The nursing mother who suffered a brutality in the hands of Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor at the Midland Savings and Loans Company in Accra, Patience Osafo, has lodged a formal complaint at the Legon Police Station, for assault.
Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor was captured in a video, violently beating up Patience Osafo who was reportedly at the bank to withdraw some money.
In the video, the police officer, who was armed with an assault rifle, is seen striking the woman, who was holding her baby, multiple times on the head, first with an umbrella, and then with his fists.
The officer also attempted to violently drag her out of the building.
According to Director General of Police Public Affairs, ACP David Eklu, the said police officer, has been arrested by the police pending further investigations.
“He has been identified and placed in custody. The lady in question has also been identified and has lodged a formal complaint at the Legon police station. The next step would be in two folds – the administration or professional aspect and the criminal aspect which has already been initiated by the lady by lodging a formal complaint to the police,” ACP David Eklu said.
