A Liberian girl was severely beaten by a Ghanaian security guard in Accra at the West Hills mall for taking pictures at a Christmas tree in the mall. According to eye witnesses when the victim by the name of Margaret stopped by the fake Christmas tree to take some shots as girls all around the World usually do. She was approached by the security guard and when he realized her accent sounded foreign, he requested her to pay 2Ghc.
Normally the fake tree is always standing in the middle of the mall and random people stop by to take pictures without paying a cent. She told the guard that she didn’t have money to pay and in order to force the money out of her he had to beat her severely as seen in the image.
Well its not a strange thing in Ghana when it comes to abusing women by Ghanaian police and security officers. This has to stop but I guess our embassy in Ghana won’t do anything as usual. When will Liberian citizens wellbeing be a priority to the Liberian embassies around the world?
