- A policeman was captured in a video brutalising a woman with a baby in a banking hall
- Ghanaians have attacked the policeman for his act
- Commenting on the development, a Ghanaian lady, Ivy Enyo Nam, condemned the police man for the assault
- She also blamed the staff who recorded the video for unprofessional conduct
YEN.com.gh earlier reported the story of a policeman beating up a nursing mother in a banking hall.
According to the report, the woman, a hawker around Okponglo in Accra, was in the banking hall of Midland Savings and Loans to withdraw her ‘susu’ savings.
The woman identified as Patience Sarfo, according to the report, had heard that the bank was facing possible liquidation and so she wanted to take all the money she had saved with them.
However, the financial institution failed to allow her withdraw her money, and called on the police officer who was on security duty in the banking hall to drive her away.
The woman, however, persisted and this led to the policeman beating her up mercilessly.
The brutal has provoked national condemnation and outrage, with many Ghanaians calling for swift punitive action for the policeman involved.
Commenting on the development, a Ghanaian lady, Ivy Enyo Nam, condemned staff of Midland Savings and Loan, who recorded the assault.
In a Facebook post, Enyo Nam faulted the staff who recorded the video for lacking professionalism.
According to her, the staff’s action could lead to the downfall on the financial institution, and wondered if Midland Savings and Loans organizes training session for its workers at all.
Enyo Nam wrote: “What’s wrong with staff these days? Everything you’ll take phone and start videoing. Do educate your staff on the DOs and DON’Ts of social media. Have a social media policy before they run your business down in the name of breaking news! Sorry Midland Savings and Loans. Next time train your staff!”
However, her comments have landed on the bad nerves of Ghanaians and some of them believe she has a 'mental problem' because they do not understand why she should blame the staff instead of the policeman.
Awal believes Enyo Nam's comments are pathetic
Laari couldn't believe another woman could justify a fellow's woman being brutalized.
Malik was also sad.
Yussif disagreed with Enyo, saying that videoing such barbaric acts would bring calm to the society.
However, when she got in contact with YEN.com.gh to explain exactly what she meant by her post, Enyo Nam revealed that she does not condone police brutality in anyway.
She added that while the police officer needs to be condemned and properly dealt with, she believes, from her experience as a communicator and marketer, that the staff who recorded the video should not have done so.
Other screenshots captured by Enyo Nam clearly show that she has also condemned Lance Corporal Amanor.
In the following post, she wondered if that was how the officer beats his female relatives at home.
In this post too, Enyo couldn't believe a police officer could behave like that.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Police has assured that justice would be carried out for the nursing mother and Ghanaians at large.
In a statement sighted by YEN.com.gh on Facebook, the police have pledge to ensure that the police officer who has been identified as Lance Corporal Frederick Godzi Amanor, will be brought to book.
