Emmanuel Nii Adom Quaye, the Beast Of No Nation star, known as ‘Strika’ has finally received an amount of ¢40,000 Ghana Cedis from his handler, Kofi Robert.
Strika accused two of his handlers, Kofi Robert and Kobina Sam ( Man who played Abraham Attah’s father) of denying him access to the USD 30,000 he got from Netflix.
A couple of days ago, the young actor, in an interview with Joy News’ MzGee, stated that the money he earned was put into a trustee at one Barclays Bank branch but unfortunately his name was not on the account.
He was helped to officially lodge a complaint at the Central Police Station in Accra, after which Kofi Robert was invited and ordered to hand over the account and its transactions consequently, the handler on Tuesday closed the account and handed over an amount of ¢40,093.22 to ‘Strika’ in the presence of his family at the Accra Regional 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 dispelled claims by Strika that he couldn’t reach him for months, saying the last transaction he made on behalf of the young actor was two months ago.
Mr. Robert said he withdrew GH¢1,000 for Strika on May 20, hoping it would last him a while.
“For me to hear he needed money again last week was surprising,” he added.
