It later emerged that the incident happened at the Shiashie branch of Midland Savings and Loans Limited in Accra.

The woman, Patience Osafo had gone to the financial institution to withdraw her savings and for four days, she could not get her money with the excuse that there was some network challenges.

On the 5th day, she decided to protest and insisted on withdrawing all her savings before leaving the banking hall.

The police officer was invited to pull her out which resulted in the scuffle and subsequent assault.
