I am sad this morning.
I was heading to the Ghana Institute of Journalism campus and I met Striker. You would ask who is Striker? Striker starred in the movie Beast of No Nations. The said film that made Abraham Attah.
Today I met him begging for money on the road leading to GIJ. I called him and brought him to campus.
Speaking to him he tells me he now works with a gentleman who sells Yam at Agbogbloshie Market
He stays with his grandma at North Kaneshie.
