Kwame Amponsah and four others were picked up by the Police after they invaded the pitch while last Thursday’s match was ongoing.
How Kudus visited pitch invader at Police station and gifted him signed jersey
The football fan who was arrested for invading the pitch during Ghana’s game against Angola has been gifted a signed jersey by Mohammed Kudus.
The Black Stars defeated the Black Antelopes 1-0 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.
A late goal by substitute Antoine Semenyo was the difference between the two teams as Chris Hughton made a winning start to his tenure as Ghana coach.
There was, however, a pause in play in the second half when a fan run onto the pitch in a bid to get access to Kudus.
The fan, who has now been identified as Amponsah, was quickly accosted by the policemen on duty, before being taken away for the game to resume.
The police apprehended four more pitch invaders who attempted to take selfies with the Ghanaian players on the pitch at full time.
Sports journalist Collins Atta Poku has now revealed that all five pitch invaders have been released from the Asokwa Police Station.
Sharing a photo he took with Amponsah from the police station, he further disclosed that Kudus visited the aforementioned pitch invader at the station and gifted him a signed jersey.
“Visited Kwame Amponsah and the four other pitch invaders who were arrested and kept at the Asokwa Police Station,” Atta Poku wrote on Twitter.
“Kwame in your shot here was all over Mo Kudus yesterday. Kudus visited them at the station and gave him a signed jersey. They have all been granted bail as it stands.”
It will be recalled that there was a similar pitch invasion during the Black Stars' win over South Africa in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Cape Coast Stadium on November 14, 2019.
The pitch invader, who was later identified as 25-year-old Awal Suleman, was fined GHc2,400 by the Cape Coast Circuit Court for breaching public disturbance laws.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) also fined the Ghana Football Association (GFA) an amount of $10,000 over the incident.
