Ghanaian child actor, Strika, who was discovered together with Abraham Attah, following the release of a popular movie, ‘Beasts of No Nation’ has been spotted begging on the streets of Accra.

Caleb Nii Boye, who had an encounter with Strika made this known in a post on Facebook.

He wrote; “I am sad this morning. I was heading to the Ghana Institute of Journalism campus and I met Striker. You would ask who is Striker? Striker starred in the movie Beast of No Nations. The said film that made Abraham Attah. Today I met him begging for money on the road leading to GIJ. I called him and brought him to campus. Speaking to him he tells me he now works with a gentleman who sells Yam at Agbogbloshie Market. He stays with his grandma at North Kaneshie”.

However, Kobina Amissah-Sam, a character in the movie, some time ago stated that all the kids featured in the ‘Beasts of No Nation’ movie were not left just like that.

“They have not been forgotten, they have really been taken care of. They are not lacking now as they used to so everything is cool for them now. He has never been in school before but after the production, producers of the movie felt that they have to put him in school. I don’t think that it is Netflix that is taking care of them, it is the producer who wants to help the kids. He is taking care of the three kids, Abraham, Striker and there is one other guy called Justice who stepped on Agu’s head when he was caught,” he said in an interview with MzGee on Hitz FM in 2016.
