3 Ghanaian Times journalists Battle To Survive After Police Brutality

Three journalists from the Ghanaian Times newspaper who were on their way for the day’s assignment were Thursday morning assaulted by five police officers at Kinbu in Accra Central.

The assault followed a traffic offence and an accident involving a police officer who was using an unregistered motorcycle and the official Ghanaian Times vehicle, which was transporting the journalists to their various assignment venues.

The five police officers who were not happy that the journalists had tried to record the accident and the ensuing exchanges between their driver and the police motor rider, pounced on the journalists and physically assaulted them.

Mr Malik Sullemana, a court reporter, Mrs Raissa Sambou, a general reporter and Mr Salifu Abdul Rahman, an Assistant Editor, felt the full effect of the brute force used by the police officers, leading to two of them being sent to hospital to receive medical attention.

Mrs Sambou, a lactating mother was rushed to the emergency unit of the Ridge Hospital, while Sullemana, who received a chunk of the assault was locked up at the Ministries Police Station, but was later released.

Mr Sullemana (pictured above) has since been treated and discharged from the Cocoa Clinic in North Kaneshie, but as of 6pm, Sambou was still on admission at the Ridge Hospital and is responding to treatment.
