Police beat up suspected ‘Sakawa boys’ for scamming a white woman

Reports say a white woman filed a complaint with the police claiming that the said suspects had scammed her.

The video shows a group of both uniformed and plain-clothed police officers together with the complainant and other white relatives besieging the home of the suspects.

The officers are also seen vandalising the doors and making their way into the house.

As they arrested some of the suspects, they could be seen slapping them as though they had already been convicted for the suspected crime.

The activities of internet fraudsters is a disturbing trend globally which the Ghana police service has been making efforts to combat.

However, the assault on the suspects have shifted the focus of Ghanaians from the crime for which they have been arrested.

Commenting on the video on Instagram, some users attacked the police for kissing the ass of white a complainant by mistreating the suspects.
