The Ghana Police Service says it has launched investigations into an incident that led to a police officer slapping a woman at a voters’ registration centre.
In a video trending on social media, the officer is seen in a heated altercation with the woman who is in a queue with dozens of others, waiting for their turn to register.
It is unclear what triggered the argument, but both parries seemed to be unready to let it go.
The amateur footage then goes on to show the yet-to-be-identified officer slapping the middle-aged woman to the amazement of onlookers.
While others intervened to restrain the woman from confronting the policeman, he was also pulled away by some men at the site.
The Police Service in a post on Facebook said the investigations will explore what happened to have caused the altercation between the two.
“The Police Administration wishes to assure the public that it has commenced an investigation into the matter and will provide facts of the matter to the public in due time, all should be assured.”
