Though life unexpectedly smiled on him, he soon lost everything because he trusted a long-time friend.

Friend runs away with the car
Owusu recalled working one day when his wife called that their child was sick.
''I had to rush back home. Upon reaching home, I gave the car to my friend (Joe) to pick a customer from Accra. I never saw him again,'' he said.
Owusu disclosed that the unfortunate event happened in 2019, and nobody has since heard from him. He had to deal with the fallout from the incident as the car owner thought he planned it with his friend.

''The car owner got me arrested and sent to court. Eventually, I was on remand for three months and a week,'' he added.
Though Owusu is out of remand with the help of his lawyer, the case is not closed, he said.
The father of five, who is now jobless, is using every possible means to find Joe and the car.
