The Ghana Police Service has offered 2000ghc reward for information leading to the arrest of the guy shown in a viral video beating up a baby.
The police claimed they are actively looking for the male and trying to rescue the infant in a series of tweets sent on Tuesday, October 4.
“The Police have sighted a horrifying video on social media in which a male adult is seen subjecting an infant to severe beating under a tree.
“Efforts are underway to track down the individual involved, have him arrested and rescue the child.
“In view of the urgency associated with the matter, a reward of GHC2000 has been set aside for anyone who is able to provide credible information that could lead to the arrest of the individual and rescue of the child,” parts of the tweets read.
We previously reported on a viral video showing a guy assaulting an infant boy in front of a room full of seemingly disinterested senior citizens.
The guy can be seen on camera for a total of 23 seconds, lashing the baby with a dry palm tree branch in what seems to be a rural area.
The guy seen and heard in the background of the video first warns the other man (the one flogging the kid) in Twi that the other would do harm to the child, but then does nothing to stop the irate man from carrying out his excessive ‘punishment.’
He beats the youngster 24 times until he gives up and abandons him.
As he continued to beat the youngster, he wept less and less, until it was obvious that the child could no longer cry.
