Midland Saving and Loans has disclosed the company is engaged with the nursing mother who was brutalized by a police officer at the company’s headquarters to make sure she is appropriately compensated.
A video emerged on social media Friday, showing a policeman beating up a woman who carried a baby at the premises of the headquarters of Midland Savings and Loans at Shiashe in Accra.
Frederick Amanor Skalla was asked by officials of Midland Savings and Loan to show the nursing mother with her baby to the door for demanding her money but the policeman decided to do in a brutish way.
Starting with an umbrella, the policeman hit the woman and her baby several times in the head before he started slapping and punching her.
Not even the tears of the weeping child and the woman will stop the policeman from continuing with his assault.
The company has admitted the issue was not handled properly and has since issued an apology to the assaulted customer and the general public.
But Public Relations and Marketing Manager of the company, George Paa Kow Hagan, told 3news the company is doing more in the background.
“More importantly you need to know we are engaged with the customer concerned to make sure that she receives full compensation, full attention and full apology from the company”, he said .
He also disclosed that the company has taken some internal disciplinary actions against workers who have been involved and that they risk being dismissed if they are found guilty in the issue.
He added the company will not cover up anybody.
Meanwhile, media reports have it that the police officer whose name is given as Frederick Amanor Skalla is in the grips of the police pending prosecution.
