Funeral held for juvenile footballers who died in Offinso accident; gov’t absorbs cost » ™

Ofinso is in a state of mourning as the remaining four of the eight juvenile footballers who died in the fatal road accident are buried.

Per a news report, four of the footballers who are Muslims were buried a few days after the accident in line with Islamic customs.


The cost of the funeral has been taken care of by the government. The eight footballers died after their team Vision Academy was involved in an accident on September 19 while returning from registration.

The team was travelling back to Offinso after a registration exercise at Afrancho in Kumasi when the bus carrying players and officials landed in Offinso River.


The news shocked Ghanaians especially the football community. FIFA President Gianni Infantino and CAF boss Ahmad Ahmad sent their condolences.

The GFA President Kurt Okraku led the Executive Council to sympathise with the families and also donate their monthly allowance to them. Meanwhile, former Black Stars attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng has pledged to support the victims.
