Aku Koshie, a 49-year-old ex-convict who served seven years in prison for inflicting slashes on her niece, has received help to reintegrate into society.
Her niece was allegedly beaten severely with a piece of wood from a tomato box, according to her. Her four-year-old niece was injured as a result of her actions, she claimed.
Her assimilation into society has been challenging, she told Crime Check TV GH because her neighbors stigmatize her.
“I’ve been living in a kiosk in Agbogbloshie, Accra since I got out of prison.” One of my neighbors has a habit of insulting me, tempting me to respond, but I try to resist. ‘I used to sell tomatoes, but I can’t obtain a loan today,’ she explained.
Ms. Koshie has attended training and therapy, according to a counselor at the Nsawam Female Prison, Assistant Chief Officer (ACO), Reverend Bridget Ocansey, and has therefore turned a new leaf. She said that she used to be unfriendly, but that after hearing the lessons, she has changed her mind.
“When she first arrived in prison, she would lash out at anyone who walked on her toes. But now I notice a difference in her,” she explained.
