Two Junior Rank Police Officers have been exposed for allegedly subjecting a suspect in their custody to severe physical abuse.
The two personnel stationed at the Railway Police Station at the New Juaben South Municipality of the Eastern Region were seen in a video trending on social media, with a bicycle tyre assaulting a suspect who was said to have been accused of stealing GHS1,600 from his employer.
The suspect, who has only been identified as Dodzi, insisted that he took GHS350 from his boss’ private car and not the reported GHS1,600 he was being accused of stealing.
The officers allegedly claimed that they sought to extract a confession from the suspect and therefore resorted to beating him with bicycle tyres.
It is alleged that the police officers after assaulting the suspect detained him from Friday, September 27 up until Tuesday, October 1 before his release.
