A man was subjected to police brutality after he was caught tapping electricity illegally.
He was confronted by a team of well-armed police officers who asked for his immediate arrest after finding out that he had used illegal means to get onto the national grid.
While this man was trying to explain the situation to one of the police officers, one of the officers went behind him and started beating him with a long whip.
Although the man did not resist arrest, it was unclear what prompted the police officer to subject the man to such brutality.
“You want to challenge, why do you want to challenge,” the police officer retorted when the man tried to make a phone call.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service has interdicted the said police officers for their misconduct.
According to a statement from the Police Service, the four officers allegedly assaulted residents during an assignment by NEDCO/VRA officials to arrest persons allegedly involved in illegal power connections.
“The Police Administration has with immediate effect, interdicted four police officers working with the Tamale Regional Police Command following the alleged assault of some persons in Tamale in the Northern Region today, Tuesday, September 21, 2021,” police announced in the statement.
