I have a friend, a fiancee in Burkina Faso, they are not

Customer Question

I have a friend, a fiancee in Burkina Faso, they are not allowing him to leave, to return to France English speaking country because of debt. His card was refused at the bank while on work there and he has had no money to pay the debt. I have been trying but do not have the resources to finance this. Is there anything that can be done for him? How do we get him out, so he can get to his bank to get the money to pay?
They paid him his contract, deposited it into his account, but he cannot leave the country. They will not allow it, He tried even leaving overnight by bus, but the Ivory Coast turned him back. He only speaks French
