In a statement, the ministry stated that the remains of the former Black Stars player will be accompanied by his family and Ghana’s Ambassador to Turkey on a Turkish airline flight expected to arrive at 7:40pm in Accra.
His remains will received at the Kotoka International Airport by the family, the Ghana Football Association (GFA), as well as the government upon arrival.
