Ghana Police Service leaves officer to his fate after injury sustained on duty

Information available to YEN.com.gh suggests that a police officer, Sergeant Jonathan A. Otto, has been left to his fate after sustaining injuries while on duty.

According to sources, he is yet to receive his benefits and is therefore pleading with the Service to heed to his cry.

Sergeant Otto served in the Ghana Police Service for 25 years but was declared as a deserter after he was knocked down by a vehicle in the line of duty.

Speaking on Dwaso Nsem, on Friday, September 21, 2018, he stated that the service has placed an embargo on his salary for 8 years and has also refused him other benefits due him for the past years; a situation he said has left him devastated.

“I was on an operation duty at Sankara Circle, some years back when I was knocked down by a car and was rushed to the hospital.

It affected my leg so I had to undergo surgery at the police hospital, where I was admitted for one month,” he narrated.

He was later discharged, but upon his return to work, he was transferred from the headquarters to the Volta Region.

“When I reported, I was told that the service could no longer work with me, without any explanation and what I don’t know is whether it’s because of my condition,” he added.

“They have put an embargo on my salary and other benefits. As I’m speaking, I have nothing on me; I only rely on my son to feed me. Please help me because the service is not treating me well,” he appealed.

His son, Emmanuel Otoo, said in 2017 they petitioned the police service about the state of his father but all to no avail.

He added that the situation has affected the entire family with his father unable to take care of the entire family.

This fear is that his father might be suffering from some psychological effects since he keeps to himself and hardly opens up to people as compared to before.

The family is, therefore, pleading with the service to intervene and commence the necessary arrangements that will ensure justice is served his father.
