Court Fines Pitch Invader GHC2,400

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.
