Aliu, as seen in the video, was given protecting wear for his feet and a shovel with which he removed packs of sand from the dirty gutter under strict supervision.
When the young man was done, he was allowed to take his bath, given a new set of clothes to wear, and taken to the classiest restaurant where he was served a heavy meal to his satisfaction.
"You Ghana people are very good people. If it were a different community, they would have killed me. I won't steal again," he said in the footage shared on We Are Ga page on Facebook.
Finding a 'girlfriend'
After going through the punishment and the little 'enjoyment', a pretty young lady who stood by watching the young man confessed she was already fond of him.
The feeling, according to Aliyu, was mutual and the duo hugged affectionately afterward.
