By Kweku Antwi Jnr

An Accra Circuit Court presided over by Mrs. Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye has granted bail to the police officer who assaulted a female customer of the Shiashie branch of the Midland Savings and Loans, Lance Corporal Godzi Frederick Amanor, to a tune of GHS60,000 with two sureties.

Three other staff of the Savings and Loans who are the Operations Manager, Joycelyn Kukua, the Customer Care Officer, Shirley Portia Anaman and a Driver, Prince Ayensu, who were present during the brutalities, were also charged for abetment of crime.

They were also granted bail on Thursday, August 9, 2018.

The victim, Patience Safo was ruthlessly assaulted by Lance Corporal Amanor while holding a baby.

She had insisted on withdrawing a sum of GHS270 from the facility as her previous attempts to withdraw the money days back had failed due to a network challenge.
