Following the hullabaloo which greeted the viral video of a nursing mother who was given the beatings of her life by a police officer called Frederick Amanor Skalla, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) of the Nigeria Police Force appeared startled by the assault the Ghanaian police officer meted on the woman carrying a baby in a banking hall.
The unfortunate incident which has since gone viral involves Frederick Amanor of the Accra Regional Police Operations Unit.
From the video, the young police officer who has since been arrested and pending investigation was seen kicking, punching the face and dragging Patience Sarfo, who was desperately holding on to her little baby on the floor.
According to reports, the woman went to the bank to demand her GHS250 she has deposited with the bank but was told to leave and come the following day because the bank had closed for the day. The police officer on guard at the bank, Frederick Amanor was called in to drive her out.
But upon watching the video, the Head of the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU) of the Nigeria Police Force, ACP Abayomi Shogunle, took to Twitter to take a swipe at the Ghana Police Service.
“We will never do this in Nigeria,” he tweeted on Friday.
WE (@PoliceNG) WILL NEVER DO THIS IN NIGERIA ??!
