Three other staff of the bank, Joycelyn Kukua, the Operations Manager of the Company; Shirley Portia Anaman, Customer Care Officer; and Prince Ayensu, a driver, all of whom were charged for abetment, were also granted bail on Thursday, 9 August 2018.

Lawyers for the four argued that their clients would not abscond when granted bail, but would always appear before the court to defend themselves.

It all happened when the officer, who was serving as a security detail at the financial institution, was called to escort the nursing mother who had gone there to withdraw her GHC270 she had saved with the bank out but ended up beating her in the process.

The Bank denied to give her the money with an excuse that they were experiencing a network problem thus couldn’t conduct the transaction. She disagreed and cried out for the bank to give her her money since the child was hungry and needed food.
