- A woman by name Patience Sarfo received the beatings of her life in the banking hall of Midland Savings and Loans days ago
- She had gone there to withdraw her savings when the unfortunate incident happened
- The company has compensated her with a brand new house and money to avoid being dragged to court
YEN.com.gh reported the cruel incident of a police man viciously attacking a woman carrying a baby in the banking hall of Midland Savings and Loans.
The woman, Madam Patience Sarfo, has reportedly gone to the financial institution to withdraw her ‘susu’ savings when she was subjected to that cruel beating by Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor Skalla, the police officer who was on security duty at the company.
She was said to have had the information that the bank was struggling and faced a possible liquidation, hence she went to take the only money she had saved with them – GHC270 – but it ended in violence.
According to information gathered by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com, Madam Sarfo is said to receive a brand new house and an undisclosed amount of cash from Midland Savings and Loans.
This gesture by Midland is to compensate the woman, and also avoid being dragged to court, stated the report.
“Well, to avoid a civil suit against Midlands Savings and in compensation for the punches, trauma and embarrassment, we just closed a rather ‘generous’ deal that removes her from the kiosk to owning a brand new house and from the streets hawking toffee to a woman now with multiple bank accounts,” her lawyer, Samson Lardi Anyenini reportedly announced.
“Yes, her worries no longer include how to feed her family and provide healthcare for the two months old baby. Her 270-Cedis savings account now holds a six-figure sum,” Samson added.
Madam Patience Sarfo, in her scuffle with the police officer, received slaps, blows, punches, and whipping with an umbrella from the police officer.
She was captured in the video holding on firmly to the baby, her grandchild, while the police officer beat her.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported earlier the generosity by some Ghanaians who donated an amount of GHC12,000 to Madam Patience Sarfo, a day after her beatings on Friday, July 20, 2018.
Another donation followed in which she received a total of GHC40,000.
It is no doubt that Madam Patience Sarfo is a rich woman now with the many cash donations and brand new house she has received.
Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor, on the other hand, has pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault when he appeared before an Accra Circuit Court on Thursday, July 26, 2018.
The presiding Judge Janet Harriet Akweley Quaye, remanded him into police custody and adjourned the case to August 9, 2018.
