Hussein Zachariah, a junior officer with the Ghana Police Service is receiving massive applause on social media for showing both professionalism and humanitarianism in extreme measures at the same time.
Elikem Kotoko, a young man who shared Hussein's heroic act on his Facebook handle, revealed that the police officer stood strong in several hours of rainfall just to ensure that road-users at a particular junction did not fall victim to the weather.
According to the narrator, the traffic light in the area has stopped functioning and the young police officer found it needful to intervene, to the extent of rejecting an umbrella that was offered to him on the basis that it would distract the workflow.
"We still have committed men and women in the black and white uniform indeed. I’m sure it won’t be out of place to procure those small head-umbrellas for them once we enter the rainy season," Elikem admitted after sharing the heartwarming story.
