Chief slaps and tears uniform of cop at Police Station

A sub chief of Abreshia in Wassa Akropong of the Western region, Nana Amoah Kumi Bediako II has allegedly slapped a policeman for being asked to park well at the station.

Inspector Tetteh Agbanyo, who is the station officer at the district, approached Nana Bediako II on Friday, March 22, 2019 at the station in the morning to ask him to move his car from an unauthorized spot to avoid obstruction.

According to a police report, the chief felt offended by the instruction and slapped the law enforcement agent.

“The Station Officer told him to move the car and park at a right place to enable others have easy access to the charge office. He [then] became offended and slapped the station officer,” the report sighted by Daily Mail GH recounted.

The report also alleged that the Odikro held the uniformed officer “in the neck and tore the police uniform as well as destroying his name tag and the police badge.”

“At about 5:00pm same day, the suspect, Nana Amoah Bediako II alias Nana Kwasi Kumi Odikro of Wassa Abreshia stormed the Police Station with five macho men and attacked duty men, and again attacked and punched the station officer on his nose which made him bled profusely. He threatened him with words to wit ‘l will kill u’,” the station report said.

Nana Bediako II has since been arrested and transferred to the Divisional headquarters for investigation.
