- Counselor Lutterodt has opened up on the trending assault issue at a branch of a Midland Savings and Loans
- According to him, he did not subscribe to the treatment meted out to the woman
- A policeman was seen on video assaulting a nursing mother and the issue has gained national attention
Controversial and outspoken marriage counselor and life coach, Counselor George Lutterodt, has waded into the trending issue about a nursing mother who was assaulted by a uniformed policeman in one of the banking halls of Midland Savings and Loans.
Speaking in an extensive interview on Kofi TV, the counselor made the point clear that there was clearly no justification whatsoever for the policeman’s action because no one deserved to be treated that way.
However, he chided the woman, Patience Osafo for probably having a hand in the whole assault case which has gained a lot of reactions on social media.
According to Counselor Lutterodt, Madam Patience Osafo allefedly asked for financial assistance from the policeman and it might have angered him to take such an action.
Counselor Lutterodt also bashed the lady for not knowing the essence of family planning which resulted in her giving birth to 3 children in the face of her existing economic condition.
The outspoken counselor also alleged that the policeman, who has come to be identified as Frederick Amanor, might have acted out of the fact that the lady did not heed to his command of walking out of the banking hall peacefully.
