Police officer arrested for beating up woman with baby

The attention of the Ministry Of Gender, Children and Social Protection has been drawn to a video which has gone viral showing a policeman in uniform who has been identified as "Fredrick Amannor" assaulting and battering a nursing mother in Midland saving and Loans banking hall.

Hon. Otiko Afisah Djaba who is the current Minister for Gender,Children and social protection emphasized that, " the Ministry cannot fathom what crime the nursing mother could have committed to warrant the violent and vicious attack by this officer of the law. Most disturbing however  was the attitude of the persons who were in the Banking Hall and made no attempt whatsoever either to restrain the deranged policeman or to protect the hapless woman".

According to her, " the Ministry is concerned about the rising incidence of violence affecting vulnerable members of the Ghanaian society like women, girl, children, the poor and the disabled".

Once again, the Ministry is exhorting all leaders of society to support the Ministry to inculcate the virtues of love and care for the weakest and most vulnerable in our society ".

She concluded, the Ministry is aware of the swift action taken by the Minister of interior to bring this erring officer to book. It is our expectation that this behavior will be dealt with in consonance with the law of Ghana, and the sanctions announced publicly to serve as deterrence to other rogue policemen".
