Christian Atsu frees 10 prisoners by paying court fines


Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu has given the freedom to 10 inmates of the Cape Coast Prison Annex by paying their court fines.

There was joy and exchange of hugs and some tears at the Cape Coast Prison annex as ten prisoners who were jailed for petty theft were freed through the benevolence of Black Stars player and philanthropist Christian Atsu.

In October this year, Atsu rescued a mother and her two daughters were set to spend three months in prison for taking some leftover corn estimated at GH¢10 which did not belong to them.
