Wearing an all-white straight dress, the young lady, whose identity is not yet known, was held for several hours inside the shop after she was nabbed.

The lady, perhaps feeling shy of her action, was captured frantically trying hard to cover her face while the name-calling and insults kept coming at her.

"Live and coloured. A female has been caught trying to steal GH¢40,000. As a young lady, like you what are you going to do with GH¢40,000?" a male voice was heard in the video saying.

Another male voice was heard shouting at the young lady to remove her hands from her face so everyone gathered at the scene could see her for who she was.

Other voices heard in the video threatened to mercilessly beat the young lady to serve as a deterrent to others like her.

It is unclear what eventually happened to the lady as the video posted on TikTok by @ndc067 ended abruptly without any sign of whether she was sent to the police station or left off the hook.

Netizens react to the video

Netizens who came across her video said the young lady would have spent the money on needless stuff. Others also said the hardship in the country is what pushed her into that alleged criminal act.

@MORD said:

"The saddest thing is, she will use to buy wig and cloths."

@Adépå GüdâØnē also said:

"No be her, the economy hard."

@Kevin Swagson commented:

"The owner of the money will also be in hardship mode after that and might even kill himself …. Just a mobile money merchant."

@Nancy Bella also commented:

"Oh but 40,000 is too much."
