Ex-convict weeps as he remembers how Christian Atsu freed him from jail [VIDEO]

As he paid his respects at the late footballer’s one-week memorial, an ex-convict who was released from prison thanks to the assistance of late Black Stars winger Christian Atsu Twasam broke down in tears. The man, who served six months in prison after a brawl with a taxi driver in 2017, claimed he was still in shock at the death of the late former Chelsea player.

He described how a prison guard had informed him, while he was still imprisoned, 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.” He spoke.
