She said she refused to leave the bank when she was asked to come back again for her money. She said she was too broke to leave, as she had borrowed 60 cedis to pay fees since the bank started tossing her.

The bank reportedly paid her the sum of 270 cedis after the assault.

Ghanaian police say the officer was already in custody and investigation was ongoing.
