Ebenezer Tetteh, an aged man who was a victim of the Agbogbloshie demolition that took place weeks ago in Accra has spoken to YEN.com.gh in the aftermath.
According to the man, he had an entire shop where he used to sell second-hand home appliances for money to take care of his five children before the demolition.

The father of five, as part of his narration, mentioned that he was highly disappointed in Ghana's president over the demolition because he used to serve Nana Addo food in the 70s.
"During the time of Rawlings, I was a driver at the Foreign Affairs Ministry. I know President Akufo-Addo personally and I used to serve him food. But now, look at what he has done to me," Ebenezer said.
The evacuation of traders from Agbogbloshie is an action that was met with stern opposition but was carried out regardless, and now, pictures showing the aftermath have surfaced.
