GHANA ASSOCIATION OF SAVINGS AND LOANS COMPANIES (GHASALC) CONDEMNS ATTACK ON PATIENCE OSAFO IN THE PREMISES OF MIDLAND SAVINGS AND LOANS LIMITED BY POLICE OFFICER FREDERICK AMANOR
The Ghana Association of Savings and Loans Companies (GHASALC) would like to condemn in no uncertain terms the brutalities brought on Madam Patience Osafo by one Frederick Amanor who is a Police Officer.
The incident which took place at the Shiashie Branch of Midland Savings and Loans on Thursday, July 19, 2018, has attracted wide condemnations from Ghanaians, and we also join in condemning the act in no uncertain terms.
We believe that the customer did not do anything warranting the treatment meted out to her. Therefore, the action of the Police Officer was uncalled for. Such an uncouth act should not be exacted on customers who patronize our services.
We entreat the Police Service to deal decisively with this Police Officer according to the laws of the land while we also take up the matter with Midland Savings and Loans Limited.
We once again, wish to express our solidarity with Madam Patience Osafo and let her know that we shall get to the bottom of this matter.
