A statement signed and issued by the Ashanti Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Godwin Ahianyo name the two affected police women as PW/Inspr Martha Ackah and No.6233 PW/Sergeant Felicia Ocran of the Asokwa Divisional MTTD in Kumasi.
Their conduct has been described as “unprofessional” in the statement.
The two were seen in the video threatening to march a driver in what look like a truck to the police station if he failed to top up the five cedis (GHC5 00) he was offering them.
One of them could be heard saying that the GHC5.00 was too paltry and the driver, who could be heard eating, eventually parted with a GHC10.00 note which was grabbed by the officer as she stepped down from the vehicle.
Their interdiction is to allow for a thorough investigation into their case, the police statement said.
“If found guilty, they would be made to face the full rigours of the law aside the internal disciplinary actions,”
“We would like to urge the affected victims to come forward and support Police investigation to enable us take the Officers through the due process of the law as we seek to ensure that our officers uphold the highest form of professional standards,” the police said.
