A very sad incident has just happened in one of the villages in Ghana and people can’t just keep quiet about it.
In festive occasions like this, we all know how rampant thefts and armed robberies go on since it’s time for these unscrupulous persons to also gather resources for the celebration of the yuletide.
In Abakrampah, a town within Abura Asebu Kwamankese Constituency in the Central Region of Ghana, report reaching our close sources there indicates that a man’s home has been attacked by burglars some few hours ago.
Agya Ato Anim, a security personnel who had just received his monthly salary of Gh¢250.00 for this month and had only one Gh¢200.00 note left after he gave his wife Gh¢50.00 for a Christmas chicken has this awful news to share.
According to the narrator of the story, the thief went to his house brandishing a machete and requesting for any monies within the household, but, he hesitated for a while before complying.
When Agya Ato was about handing over his last Gh¢200.00 note to the thief, something struck him and he gathered the boldness to resist the thief. The thief went further to threaten the man with death and as frustrated as he looked, he crumpled the Gh¢200.00 note, opened his mouth and threw the money in. The man then chewed the note and swallowed it !
Later on, the thief left the man’s home disappointed. When our source asked the man why he took such an outrageous step, he bemoaned why he should hand over his last cash to the thief…
What do you make of the man’s decision to chew the Gh¢200.00 note ?
