The Cape Coast Circuit Court ‘B’ has fined the pitch invader who disrupted the AFCON qualifier between Ghana and South Africa GhC2,400.

Awal Suleman has also been asked to sign a bond of good behaviour or in default serve 3 months in prison.

He was charged on two counts. Disturbing public peace and resisting arrest.

Awal stormed the pitch in the 74th minute, holding a phone in search of Black Stars player Thomas Partey but was given a hot chase by the security officials and apprehended.

According to the 25-year old his decision to go on to the pitch was because he wanted to have a selfie with the Atletico Madrid star.

He since apologised for the incident.
