Ex-convict details how bailed him

He detailed how one day, while inside jailed, a prison guard informed him that a footballer had come to pay their fines so they could be released.

”After a fight with a taxi driver, I was incarcerated … one day, they let us know that a Black Stars player had come to cover the fines for convicts who had committed minor offenses so that we could be freed. I was utterly stunned.”
