Interdicted Midland policeman to resume official duties - Ghana Police Service

The Police Administration will today lift the interdiction of Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor Godzi, the policeman who assaulted Ms Patience Osafo at the Shiashie branch of Midland Savings and Loans Limited.

The action follows Godzi’s discharge by a court in December last year due to the lack of interest in the trial by the victim.

According to Daily Graphic sources , after the lifting of the interdiction, L/Cpl Godzi, would however, go through internal police disciplinary proceedings.

He is expected to resume normal duties while he goes through the disciplinary proceedings.

Also discharged by the court were three officials of Midland Savings and Loans who were charged for allegedly aiding Godzi to assault Ms Osafo.

Checks by the Daily Graphic revealed that the four accused persons in connection with the case were discharged by the court, presided over by Ms Cecilia Dapaah Mireku, in December 2018.

The court discharged them due to the lack of interest in the trial by Ms Osafo.

She is said to have failed to appear before the court to testify and also failed to avail herself to help the police with investigations.

She was reported to have failed to avail herself to testify in the case on many occasions, leading to the decision of the court, in December 2018, to discharge L/Corporal Godzi, aka Skalla, for want of prosecution.

Godzi was charged with assault in the beating Ms Osafo, a customer of Midland, on its premises when she went there to withdraw her money on July 19, 2018.
