Victim of Police brutality seeks justice in court …
The 28-year-old young man, Dodzi Alegbe who assaulted by two policemen at Koforidua Railway Police Station in the Eastern Region has resolved to proceed to court to seek justice.
The victim, according to his familiy has been left hugely traumatized following the brutality he suffered.
Mr Daniel Alegbe, the victim’s father said his son now becomes terrified whenever he steps out and sees a policeman, as it reminds him of his painful experience.
General Sergeant Patrick Amoako and General Lance Corporal Isaac Marfo have been interdicted on the orders of the Acting Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong Boanuh after they were captured on tape assaulting the suspect for allegedly stealing GH¢1,600.00 from his employer.
The suspect, identified as Dodzi, was handcuffed and whipped with bicycle tyres trimmed like a belt to force him to admit to the crime.
The suspect, following an interrogation, denied the theft allegations but the police will have none of it.
In an interview on Kasapa News, Mr. Daniel Alegbe stated that the family has resorted to the law court because they believe that is where justice will be served.
He added that his son is not interested in accepting any compensation for now hence will fight the case in court to its logical conclusion.
“I come from a royal family my son’s mother also comes from a royal family. Both families have been disgraced by what has been done to my son a video of which has gone viral on social media. People are asking why don’t we accept some compensation and drop the case. The issue is that my son is not yet well so what if we accept money and it’s not able to take care of my son? So, for now, let’s put the discussion of compensation on the back burner for now.
Mr Alegbe denied that neither himself nor his son has said anywhere that the offending policemen must be forgiven contrary to publications on some news website.
