The names of the staff were not known at the time of filing this report.
A video which went viral on last Friday showed Lance Corporal Fredrick Amanor of Service number 50260 mercilessly beating one Patience Osafo with her child at the premises of Midland Savings and Loans Ltd to pulp.
“Management has commenced investigations into the matter and all those involved will be dealt with in accordance with the law. We do not approve of what happened and condemn it in no uncertain terms. It is unfortunate, but our staff are trained to respond to the needs of customers in a professional manner,” the Deputy Managing Director of Midlands, Mr. Isaac Mensah, said.
He added that, though he appreciates the role played by the police in protecting financial institutions, including the company, he saw the incident involving the policeman regrettable and unacceptable.
He apologised to the victim of the police brutality, on behalf of the company and said it had, since last Friday, tried to contact her personally to express regret to her but the effort has been fruitless.
“We have been to her house; we have called the number she provided in our database but it is either someone picks and says she is not around or the phone is off. We want to apologise to her. We are deeply sorry for what happened,” he said.
Meanwhile, Police Administration has identified and put No. 50260 Lance Corporal Godzi Frederick Amanor in police custody to be processed for Court on all applicable criminal charges.
He has also been interdicted and his uniform and all other police accoutrements taken from him, pending internal disciplinary proceedings.
Investigation has also commenced into the conduct of officials of the Midland Savings and Loans Limited, where the incident happened and all persons who are implicated would face the full rigours of the law.
