Seidu Adamu, a Ghanaian sports writer working in the United States, was reportedly attacked at the Black Stars’ American camp by a member of their security detail.
Aziz, a Black Stars bodyguard, is said to have attacked Seidu Adamu in an allegation that has subsequently been verified by the previous editor of 442gh.
Seidu Adamu announced on social media that he has reported the assault to the Charlotte, North Carolina, Barclay Down Police Department.
Additionally, he conveyed his appreciation to everyone who had been in touch with him following the event, which the majority of media had denounced.
“Thank you is not enough to all those who reached out to me after my unprovoked attack by the Security detailed to the Black Stars of Ghana. your calls, texts, and comments have been a strength to me.
“For me, it was a normal day to cover activities of the national team, but individually or collectively, the people around the Black Stars had a different idea.
“At this moment, I cannot say the attack on me was planned by the top hierarchy of the Ghana FA or a singular act of senseless Bravado from my attacker, whom I identified as AZIZ.
“Since the Leadership of the Ghana FA cannot guarantee my safety in and around the National Team, I have taken the hard decision to return to my base and not make the journey to Tennessee where the Black Stars are due to play the US Men’s National Team”, he said on social media.
Mexico defeated the Black Stars 2-0 on Sunday, October 15, in Nashville, Tennessee’s GEODIS Park Stadium.
In order to play the United States of America on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, the team is now getting ready.
