Gospel singer Obaapa Christy has commiserated with her colleague Perpetual Didier who lost her brother to alleged police brutality.
In a video shared online, Obaapa Christy paid the family a visit to offer a shoulder for her colleague to lean on.
She was seen consoling a teary-eyed Perpetual, who was recounting the incident when she paid her a visit at their home.
Perpetual Didier in a viral video on Monday accused some Police officers of allegedly brutalising her 32-year-old brother at the West Hills Mall in Weija.
According to Perpetual, her brother was billed to leave for Germany after spending the holidays in Ghana.
In a Facebook live stream, the teary singer chronicled events leading up to the 32-year-old’s demise which started from his trip to the shopping mall to purchase some items.
Per Perpetual Didier’s narration, the young man called Shadrach Arloo had withdrawn an undisclosed amount of money for the items when he was stopped for a search by the Police.
The security officials reportedly demanded that he discloses the content of his bag which he had told them contained cash.
Shadrach, according to the gospel musician’s account, refused to allow the officer to search him for fear that an illegal substance may be planted inside by the officers.
Perpetual Didier said he recommended that they rather proceed to a Police station for him to disclose the content.
But she said this did not go down well with the officers during which he was shoved to the ground and hit his head into unconsciousness.
She added that Schadrach was further shocked with the taser after which he died.
Meanwhile, the Police Professional Standards Bureau (PPSB) has commenced investigations into the alleged murder of the 32-year-old man.
The Police in a statement on Tuesday said it has contacted the Gospel musician, Perpetual Didier to assist with investigations.
“We would like to assure the public of a thorough investigation into the matter,” the police noted.
