Renowned Kumawood actor Oboy Siki recently shared a disturbing story about his father’s experience during the era of late former President Jerry John Rawlings.

According to Oboy Siki, his father, Amana, who was a teacher and owned 12 vehicles, was subjected to cruel treatment by soldiers loyal to Rawlings.

During that time, Amana often overloaded his vehicles due to his close relationship with a local police officer. This led to him being targeted by Rawlings’ soldiers, who allegedly lashed him on one occasion, delivering 24 brutal lashes.

Oboy Siki’s account sheds light on the harsh realities faced by many individuals during Rawlings’ regime.
