Awal Sulemana “London” who was apprehended by the police for invading the pitch during Ghana’s Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa has promised never to repeat the act again.
The 25-year-old was granted bail on Saturday after being charged with offensive behaviour and unlawful entry.
Awal, having spent 48 hours in Police custody seemed to have felt the gravity of his actions.
“I’ll never invade the pitch again but if I get the opportunity to take a picture with Thomas I’ll be grateful,” he spoke to Angel FM.
“I don’t want to disturb the public neither do I want to breach the laws of the country again”. He continued.
“I want beg Ghanaians for delaying the flow of the game. It’s an international match which this incident can tarnish the image of Ghana. I assure Ghanaians that this same incident will never happen again”. He added.
The young man who was identified as a student nurse and an athlete became the talking point after last Thursday’s match at the Cape Coast Stadium when he made his way onto the field to take a selfie with his icon Thomas Partey.
