The worries of the woman who previously sold toffee on the streets to feed herself, her daughter and her grandchild, is now deciding what dignified trade to invest her new fortune in.
The intervention by Midland to gift Patience house and cash have been described by lawyers of the 36-year-old lady as “generous”, and to avoid a civil suit against the financial institution for the punches, trauma, and embarrassment she suffered following the assault she went through at the hands of Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor Skalla.
A video of the policeman in an altercation with the woman, Patience Osafo, 36 at the Shiashie branch of Midland Savings and Loans Limited, sent outrage across social and mainstream media.
In the video, the policeman is seen using an umbrella to hit the woman, who is carrying her two-month-old baby.
The policeman then hit her with his hand and dragged her on the floor. The woman wailed bitterly while she went through her ordeal at the financial institution.
The victim had vented her frustration at the staff of the savings and loans company where she had gone to withdraw her GHS 250.00 that she had with them.
The Midland staff told Patience she could not withdraw due to network challenges.
She then asked them to allow her to withdraw just GHS 105.00 to pay her debtors and get some food for her grandchild but instead, staff the company asked the police officer to drive her out.
