”I Would have sentenced the Policeman IF I was… – Kweku Baako
”Well I dont want to sound pre-judgemental but based on what have seen in the video of assault against the woman, If I were a judge, I would have sentenced the police officer already” – Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr was responding to the assault case against the nursing mother at the Midland savings and loans company.
According to him, the actions by the police officer cannot be justified by any individual,describing it as shameful and disgraceful to the image of the police service.
Patience Osafo, the woman who was brutally assaulted by a police officer at the Shiashie branch of Midland Savings and Loan also revealed in a radio interview that aside from being beaten mercilessly by the Police Officer, he also hit her hard on the head with his gun, a scene that was not captured on video.
In a video that went viral on social media, police officer, Frederick Amanor Skalla, was seen virtually punching and slapping Patience Osafo in a banking hall.
Starting with an umbrella, the policeman hit the woman and her baby several times in the head before continuously slapping and punching her, paying little attention to her cries for help.
However Kweku Baako speaking on NEWSFILE on Joy fm, raised concerns about how recruitment are done at the police service attaining people into the service to protect citizens.
” Is so clear the police officer couldn’t control the animal in him, we all have animals in us but is obvious he could not manage his for betterment. That again comes back to discipline,the kind of institution and all that” – he added.
Explaining further, he stated that, at least his arrest shows some sensitivity and believes the police department led by Mr. David Asante-Apeatu will bring the perpetrator to book to desist others from operating in same direction.
