Meet the police officer who assaulted the nursing mother

He is called Frederick Amanor Skalla.

On Friday, a video of an officer assaulting a hapless woman popped up on social media, causing outrage among the general public.

In the said video, the Police officer is captured beating up a woman who was carrying a baby in her hands.

Reports circulating in the local media suggest the woman had entered the Midland Savings and Loan banking hall after transaction hours to withdraw some money.

However, she was refused the transaction on the explanation that banking hours were over and that she could therefore not withdraw her money.

Upon insisting, the Police office, who has since been identified as Frederick Amanor, was called to drive the woman out of the banking hall.

The one minute-twenty-seven minute (1:27) video which was apparently recorded by an onlooker captured the policeman beating the woman until some persons intervened to stop him.

Meanwhile, Midland Savings and Loans has also reported the case to the police.

Management of the financial institution has condemned the brutality which was “meted out to a customer” at its Madina branch on Friday, 20 July 2018.
