Video: 2 Police Officers Caught On Camera Assaulting Man Over Marijuana
Two Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) Police officers have been captured in a video physically assaulting a man at Asankrangwa in the Western North Region. According to reports, the man was assaulted over a bag the officer’s suspected contained marijuana (weed). The incident happened on the Saturday 19th
November 2022 around 11:00am. According to sources, the man was in the company of another man at the back of a tricycle which was stopped at the Asankrangwa Newtown, between the Asankrangwa and Asankran-Odumasi. The Asankrangwa Divisional Police Command MTTD personnel enquired about the owner of a bag at
the back of the Pragya (tricycle). Though it was quickly determined that the male suspect was the owner, he denied ownership, thus was brutalised by the officers. Meanwhile, some residents who looked on blamed the suspect for not admitting to the allegation and pleading for his release. The tricycle rider and the passenger were however allowed to go.
