The president of policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe will join forces some lawyers to drag Midland Savings and Loans to court for allowing a police officer brutalize a nursing mother at one of their branches in Accra. Franklin Cudjoe said he is taking action because the police officer in question could not have acted in that manner without instruction from officials of Midland.
“Now that the bank has said they are investigating the matter, it shouldn’t actually end there. I’m likely to talk to a few lawyers to sue the bank so that the bank will pay substantial damages so that the lady is properly compensated…I don’t think the best thing to do is to ask the police or any security guard to walk the woman out. The policeman was acting on instruction,” he added.
Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor was captured in a video that has gone viral brutally assaulting Patience Osafo who was at the bank to withdraw some amount of money at the bank after closing hours. 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.
