The Akyem Oda Police Command has arrested a Turkish expatriate for allegedly assaulting a Ghanaian worker.
The Turkish is a management member of the ARDA group company undertaking the Oda-Akwati-Winneba and Cape Coast water project.
The suspect is alleged to have assaulted the worker who sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for treatment.
The victim was accused of negligence by the Turkish expatriate after an excavator he was operating on got stuck in a wetland.
The Oda District Police Commander, DSP Ebenezer Ntoso, confirmed to Starr News that, two separate cases of assault have been reported to the Police by the Ghanaian workers; however, one of the suspects has been arrested and granted bail while efforts are being made to arrest the other.
Scores of workers with the Turkish company last week demonstrated over alleged abuses meted out to them by their employers.
Starr News investigations revealed that there has been another allegation of attempted rape on a female worker by one of the expatriates.
The case was allegedly reported to the then Divisional Police Commander, Ebenezer Ampofo, however, nothing was done about it.
