The incident has unavoidably created so much conversation social media. In the wake of police officer assaulting a woman in a final institution some weeks ago, people are asking if the presidency could not have lived beyond reproach.

Soe are even suggesting, albeit jokingly, that the victim here also deserves the support given to the woman abused by the police officer.

Should the abused man sue the presidency, it will be an issue the presidency would want to do away with quickly. But clearly, there are some in Ghanaian public who think he would have a case if he took on the presidency.
