A police officer who is stationed at the Chorkor Police Command whose name is not yet known has been accused of allegedly assaulting one Sabastian Takyi, a car owner.
Mr Takyi said when the driver was working today, June 10, the police officers believed to be working with the Chorkor Police Command stopped the driver for using an expired an roadworthy certificate.
According to report, all the explanations given to the Police by the driver, Papa Yaw was unsuccessful.
Mr. Sabastian Takyi said, he rushed to the police station when the driver called him on phone to narrate the turn of event to him. He arrived at the Station and asked the police officer why his car has been parked at the Station.
Unfortunately for him, another Police officer gave him a hefty slap from behind and dragged him on the floor for asking his superior a supposedly a ‘useless’ question.
The victim said he asked his driver to renew his car’s roadworthy at the Awudome branch of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority. He claimed during the print out of the roadworthy certificate, there was an error.
He stated that DVLA’s machine printed the expiry date as June ending instead of July ending which the officers at the DVLA have admitted that, it was a printing mistake at their end.
In his assertions, he said, the police officer continued assaulting him on the floor and torn his shirt. The officer threatened him that, he (Takyi) will die.
A staff at the Awudome DVLA Office, Mr. Ofori has apologized to the car owner for the error committed and endorsed the back of the Certificate which the driver can use without any problem.
All effort to get the Officer in charge at the Chorkor Police Station to comment on the issue has proven futile.
