In the video, as reported by YEN.com.gh, 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 to withdraw her money and called on the police officer who was on security duty in the banking hall to drive her away.

The lady, however, persisted and this led to the policeman beating her up mercilessly.
