The individuals behind Sunday’s attack on Black Stars coach Chris Hughton have been identified as close associates of GFA president Kurt Okraku.

Chris Hughton was the subject of what was initially thought to be a simple case of overzealous fan reactions.

Moments after Ghana lost its opening Group B game to Cape Verde, some fans stormed the team hotel in Abidjan to express their displeasure.

The identity of two of the individuals involved in the incident have now been identified as one Fatawu Mohammed and Faisal, a personal body guard of Kurt Okraku.

Fatawu Mohammed, owner of non-league side Avernor Stars and the person who carries Kurt Okraku’s purse, allegedly confronted Chris Hughton.
According to the GFA, Mohammed did not physically attack the coach.
However, the GFA admits the coach ws verbally assaulted.

The other, known simply as Ken Faisal, is a personal body guard of Kurt Okraku.

The pair were seen in video, explaining how the coach deserved to be beaten for being out of his depth.

Fortunately for the Ghana coach, some members of the entourage intervened during the confrontation before things could escalate any further.
