She had relocated to Ghana's capital for a better life but things did not go the way she expected.

Raising funds for her

According to a post seen on the Facebook page of the Ghanaian journalist, Mabel Aku Baneseh, the man with whom she had six children (two sets of twins, one deceased) would not marry her because his family accused her of witchcraft.

The man was living in Spintex in Accra and hardly contributed to his family's upkeep.

The award-winning journalist and other colleagues highlighted Abiba's story to help raise funds for her to, and among other things, establish a business for her.

In an update following the first post in January, Abiba can now boast of her own provision shop with two refrigerators.

Additionally, two years of advance rent have been paid, all the five children are back in school with all fees paid, and other expenses such as books, and feeding have been also catered for.

Social media reactions

The kind deeds have warmed the hearts of many on social media. Legit.ng highlights some of the comments below:

Fred Kyei Mensah said:

''Great gesture, however, I will plead that a burglar-proof ventilation outlet should be created for the shop otherwise, HEAT would destroy most of the items when they close for business.

Kofi Plahar commented:

''Thank you and all who helped with her transformation. Kindly monitor her and ensure she doesn't engage in any relationship with the husband or any man that may prey on her.''

Bawa-ayamga Atazona said:

''The Ghanaian is generally a living example of loving your neighbour like thy self. Selfless and ready to help others. Yet, I wonder why and how we don't show this same level of compassion when we get the opportunity to lead. Congratulations.''
