A video going viral on social media sees a young schoolgirl in uniform being arrested and put behind bars by the Police in Akatsi, the capital of Akatsi South District, a district in the Volta Region of Ghana.
According to a report by adomonline, the culprit (name withheld) was arrested while still wearing her uniform for defying police officers who stormed her home in order to make an arrest.
Chief Superintendent Gelefo, the Akatsi Police Commander, in his explanation mentioned that his officers went to the chief’s palace to arrest a man who had electricity power issues with his landlord.
During the chaos, the young girl in school uniform allegedly hit the police van, resulting in a fight between the family and the officers, for which she was arrested.
He went on to say that after noticing the man’s absence, the cops decided to invite his wife to the station, which set off a chain of events.
It is alleged that the suspect and her family not only interfered with the investigation but that they also demanded that the police officers march before the chief, which the officers refused to do.
The police officers allegedly verbally abused Siseve Selasie, a family head who mediated the arrest and assaulted the suspect’s wife with pepper spray, according to Siseve Selasie, a family head who mediated the arrest.
