Child star of Netflix production, ‘Beast of No Nation’, Emmanuel Adom Quaye, better known as ‘Strika’, has received an amount of ¢40,000 from his handler, Kofi Robert.
In an interview with Joy News’ MzGee, Strika accused his handler of duping him of the 1% entitlement he got after he featured in the Netflix production and later lodged a formal complaint with the Central Police Station in Accra.
Kofi Robert was invited afterwards and ordered to hand over the account and its transactions to date.
On Tuesday, the handler closed the account he held in trust for ‘Strika’ and handed over an amount of ¢40,093.22 to ‘Strika’ in the presence of his family at the Accra Region Police Command.
“I was alerted by friends that Emma had been on air making certain statements and I was surprised. My understanding was that he needed money and whenever he needs money, he always calls me, we meet at the Osu Barclays bank and I withdraw the money for him,” he explained.
He. however, denied Strika’s claim that he couldn’t reach him for months, saying the last transaction he made on behalf of Strika was two months ago.
Last year it was reported that the young Ghanaian actor who played the role Strika in the award-winning movie ‘Beast of No Nations’ was begging for money on the streets of Accra to buy food.
