Rosita Nana Afriyie replied:
Hmmmm. I'm very sure he needed that for his baby and the mother...oh God help us all, I can imagine the kind of pressure the guy is in...
From Kwasi Acheampong:
My problem is why the police are behaving like they have arrested a hardened criminal. Why should they disgrace him and circulate this on social media meanwhile they do worse
Kanyiti Bamba Luqman:
His baby might be hungry. They should give it to him and advice him not to steal again
