3 prison officers beat shop attendant at Kasoa-GH, got him locked up


A 35-year-old shop attendant at Kasoa New Market is nursing his wounds after he was reportedly beaten by three Prisons Officers last Friday.

Kwame Sekyere was handcuffed and dragged through the market to a police station nearby for preventing one Kofi, an officer at the Ankaful Prisons in the Central Region from fighting in front of his shop.

The victim narrated that he told the officer and one of his customers to take their fight downstairs since their altercation could drive away his customers.

But the displeased officer, Kofi, left the scene and returned with two of his colleagues who came with a handcuff and pounced on Mr Sekyere.

“They slapped me and paraded me through the busy market like a thief and got me locked up at the Kasoa New Market Police Station”, the shop attendant said.
