The Accra Circuit Court has granted bail to Lance Corporal Frederick Amanor in the sum of Gh¢60,000 with two sureties for allegedly assaulting Patience Osafo, a customer of Midland Savings and Loans Limited.
According to the court presided over by Mrs Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye, the sureties must be gainfully employed and must not earn less than Gh¢500 a month.
Amanor, aka Skalla, has been charged with assault for allegedly mercilessly beating Patience, who had gone to the bank to withdraw her money.
Apart from the policeman, three officials of Midland were also charged with abetment of assault and accordingly granted bail on the same conditions as Skalla.
The bank officials are Jocelyn Kukwaa-Fakah, Operations Manager of Midland; Shirley Portia Anaman, Customer Service officer and Prince Ayensu; driver.
The four accused persons were granted bail after they pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against them and their lawyers prayed for bail.
Lawyers for the four argued that their clients would not abscond when granted bail, but would always appear before the court to defend themselves.
Per the facts as presented by the prosecutor, DSP George Amegah, Patience was a customer of the bank, but was always given an excuse whenever she went for her bank.
On July 19, 2018, she went to bank to withdraw money but the bank officials told her that there was a network problem.
She, therefore, approached Jocelyn and Shirley to help her withdraw her money, but instead of helping her, the bank officials told Skalla to sack her from the banking hall.
Skalla in an attempt to sack her assaulted her by beating her.
According to the prosecutor, the two bank officials did not stop Skalla from assaulting Patience.
Shirley as the customer service officer rather took a video of the incident, while Ayensu assisted Skalla in driving Patience out of the banking hall
The video, DSP Amegah said, went viral leading to the arrest of the four persons.
