A 45-year-old driver of the Bolgatanga Nursing Training College (BNTC), Mr. Daniel Aguruko, sustained injuries including a broken leg when two policemen allegedly assaulted him.

The two policemen were on duty at the Upper East Deputy Regional Minister and the Upper East Deputy Police Commander’s residences on June 30.


Mr Aguruko told the Ghana News Agency that he had closed from work at 2130 hours and was going home when the two policemen accosted him on the road by the Deputy Minister’s and the Deputy Police Commander’s residences.

They asked him why he was going home at that time and riding a bicycle without light and accused him of being a criminal.

He said he explained to them that he rode his bicycle into a hole and the jolt affected the light but they did not accept the explanation and assaulted him.

He alleged that they used their guns to hit his ribs while he held a fence to support himself to resist being dragged on the ground but they kicked his leg and it broke.

He fell down and they continued kicking and beating him and stopped when they saw that he was seriously hurt.
The two police men called a passer by and asked him whether he knew the victim but he replied in the negative.

They then called on phone some family members who picked him up to the hospital.

Mr. Aguruko, who is a Plaster of Paris (POP), told the GNA that he found it difficult to breath and was experiencing excruciating pains in his ribs.

He said he was yet to write his statement at the police station since he could not walk and the police were demanding his presence at the station.

Management of the NTC went to the Deputy Minster’s House to establish the truth, to which according to them, the two police men admitted the act.

The Municipal Crime Officer, Mr. Owusu Sakyre, said the incident had not yet been brought to their attention and that they would conduct investigation and if the two were found culpable they would be sanctioned according to the rules and regulation of the Police Service.
