Victim of Baba Yara shooting incident gets eye replaced

Augustine Oppong, the victim involved in the Baba Yara Sports Stadium shooting incident has undergone surgery for his left eye to be replaced.

Oppong, a transport driver, was shot in the eye by a Police Officer in a Ghana Premier League game between Asante Kotoko and Berekum Chelsea at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Asante Kotoko supporters protested after the game in what they claim to be bad officiating which resulted in their home defeat to Berekum Chelsea by a lone goal.

The referees after the game had to be escorted out of the stadium by the Police which led to one of the officers firing into the crowd, injuring Augustine Oppong in the process.

The Supporters wing of the club came to the aid of the injured supporter and funded his surgery and his eye replaced.

"God bless the leadership of NCC.I thank them and Dr. Kyei"-Augustine Oppong said in an interview on Nhyira FM.
