You can picture how it will eventually end after a soldier was beaten mercilessly by six policemen for no wrongdoing although he identified himself as a military man.
According to a report by Adomfmonline a soldier, Sergeant K.K is in a bad shape after he was assaulted by the officers after they first ‘disciplined’ his younger brother. Narrating his ordeal to Adom FM, the soldier said he asked his brother to pick him from home on his return from an assignment in Accra but the latter run into the police, who stopped to interrogate him.
But it appeared a mere interrogation turned bloody after a call was placed to the victim who rushed to the scene to help his brother out. Sergeant K.K said his attempt to identify himself as a soldier infuriated the charged officers who beat him up mercilessly.
“When I got to the scene, I sought to find out what was going on and I pulled out my ID card to let them know I am one of them, hence should forgive my brother of any crime he might have committed.
“However, there was a heated argument and the next thing I knew, I was being attacked. One of them sprayed pepper spray into my eyes while the others attacked from all angles,” he narrated.
He explained he could barely walk now and in severe pain coupled with a head injury he suffered.
“They kicked me in my balls and I had my head hit with a wood and I began to bleed profusely while they tried to handcuff me with claims of taking me to a hospital in their car but I resisted and took a taxi which was nearby,” he added.
Meanwhile, the case has been reported to the Central Regional Police Command with the victim yet to write his statement to facilitate investigations.
