A sad Ghanaian man has recently narrated an unfortunate incident he encountered after deciding to help a friend out.
Speaking during an interview on Crime Check TV Gh's YouTube channel, Kwame narrated that he used to work as a chain saw operator and was arrested on one occasion for cutting down a tree.
While in the custody of the police, he met a young man at the cell who confided in him.
The man said he was arrested about a year ago and he was granted bail which he is required to use a piece of land as collateral but unfortunately, he has not been able to provide that.

Out of empathy for the young man, the 60-year-old man offered a plot of land he had as bail for the stranger he met.
After the bail, the stranger refused to report to court and was nowhere to be found.
Kwame Asumane was arrested in place of the stranger since he was the one who bailed him out.
He shared more about his story in the video linked below;
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a 24-year-old Ghanaian lady has narrated how she was sent to jail for stealing Ghc5 to buy food to feed her three hungry children.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook page of Crime Check TV GH, Akua Akyaa recounted how she landed in prison.
Narrating her story, she said she used to work at a chop bar and had a daily wage of Ghc5. With the Ghc5, she cared for her three little children.
Akya said getting money to buy food to eat and care for her children was difficult when the owner of the chop bar she used to work at asked her to stay home.
