The family of Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor, the policeman who brutally assaulted a woman with a baby in the banking hall, has apologized for the action of their son.
In a statement available to YEN.com.gh, the family is pleading with the victim, Madam Patience Sarfo, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), and Ghanaians at large to forgive their son.
According to them, the Lance Corporal Amanor, whom they affectionately called Skalla, is an amiable, very caring and compassionate person.
They added that his action in the video is very unusual of him, therefore, Ghanaians should forgive him from the deepest part of their hearts.
While they wished Madam Patience Sarfo well, the family further appealed to Ghanaians to remember the embattled police officer in prayers.
Read the full statement below:
“The family of L/Cpl Frederick Amanor wishes to render an unqualified apology to the President, the IGP, Ms Patience Osafo, the victim and the good people of Ghana for the untold embarrassment our son has brought unto us and the nation.”
“The conduct of our son was barbaric, inhumane and antithesis to the professional training in the police. We have known Skalla as an amiable person, very caring and considerate and his conduct as captured on the tape is very usual of him. That notwithstanding, we are pleading with the good people of Ghana to find that forgiving heart deep down within to forgive our son.”
“No amount of money, words or expressions can restore the violations Ms Osafo Patience suffered. However, human as we are, offending one another is inevitable. We are therefore pleading with Ghanaians to join us to apologize to Ms Osafo Patience for the savage beatings she suffered at the hands of our son. We are deeply sorry and pray that the Good Lord heals n consoles her.”
“We are passionately pleading with Ghanaians to remember our son in their prayers for the good Lord to reform his twisted mind and steer him on a decent n humane path.”
“We are grateful that notwithstanding the sad images this video lives in your memory, you will not dwell on the negative but help us to pray to reform such characters in the service Thank you.”
Meanwhile, some compassionate individuals have donated a contribution of GHC12,000 to the assaulted woman.
She has also been advised to get a lawyer to sue Midland Savings and Loans.
She had gone there to withdraw her savings with them because the company was said to facing financial problems.
However, they failed to allow her withdraw all her savings with them and called on Lance Corporal Amanor to drive her out which led to the assault.
The police officer has consequently been arrested and is currently being processed for court, according to reports.
