The Police Administration has interdicted Lance Corporal Fredrick Amanor for assaulting a customer of Midland Savings and Loans, Shiahie branch.
The gun wielding officer was captured on video brutally assaulting the customer of the company who had gone to the institution to withdraw her deposit.
However, the financial institution was said to have closed and ordered the officer to escort the customer, Osafo Patience out of the banking hall.
The scenario angered social media users who called for the prosecution of the police officer.
He was subsequently arrested on orders of the IGP.
The police later issued a statement identifying him as a Lance Corporal who is stationed at the police headquarters.
A statement from the police said: ‘’ No. 50260 Lance Corporal Godzi Frederick Amanor is in police custody and being processed for Court on all applicable criminal charges.
He has also been interdicted and his uniform and all other police accoutrements taken from him, pending internal disciplinary proceedings.
Investigation has also commenced into the conduct of officials of the Midland Savings and Loans Limited, where the incident happened and all persons who are implicated would face the full rigours of the law.’’
