A disturbing video of some Koforidua Railway Police Station personnel brutalizing a suspect in their custody has emerged and is causing extreme anger on social media.
The video has the two police police officers who are said to be stationed at the Railway Station, near the Agatha Market in the New Juaben South Municipality of the Eastern Region, using used bicycle tyres to assault the suspect who they accuse of stealing GH¢1,600 from his employer, a claim the suspect had partly denied.
As they brutalized the suspect who has only been identified as Dodzi, he confessed to taking GH¢350 from his boss’ private car and not the GH¢1,600 he was being accused of stealing.
In spite of the denial, the police personnel who are of junior ranks, still thought they could extract a confession from the suspect hence continued to beat him with the used tyres.
As they beat the suspect who had been handcuffed at the back and defenceless, he wept uncontrollably but that did not stop the officers from exacting their ordeal on him.
At a point, another police officer, identified only as a Sergeant, who was in mufti, joined the torture gang to beat up the suspect.
According to the suspect’s father, Mr Alegbe Daniel, the police after assaulting his son, detained him from Friday to Tuesday, before granting him bail without any medications.
