#Ghana : NEWS : Ghana police assault: Customers withdraw savings en masse in protest



Customers of a Ghana bank where a nursing mother was assaulted by a policeman on Friday besieged the bank to withdraw their savings.

Photos of the crowd of customers emerged on Monday, even as the bank is locked with armed policemen presence, reports CitiNews.

One of the bank’s customer said; “They have asked me to come tomorrow due to some technical challenges. I will surely withdraw my money when I return.”


The Relationship Manager for the East Legon branch of the company, Albert Sandford Nyarko, however, told Citi News they will open for business on Tuesday, July 24, 2018.

Meanwhile, management of the company has suspended employees who were on duty when the assault occurred.

The bank has been widely condemned after a video of a police officer on duty man-handling a customer went viral.

In the video, the police officer, who was armed with an assault rifle, is seen striking the woman, who was holding her baby, multiple times on the head, first with an umbrella, and then with his fists.
