Taking to Facebook, Saddick Adams, an astute sports journalist has given the root and immediate cause of the brouhaha in Dormaa as we speak.
Below is what he posted on his Facebook timeline:
“Chilling details of the Aduana Stars defender who is in police custody for allegedly knocking down a police officer with his car last night. The Police officer, Constable Amos Maatey was on night duty together with a colleague.
“He sought permission to go and buy mosquito repellent on his motorbike. While returning, he got knocked down and died instantly.
“Police later found out driver of the car was defender of Aduana Stars, Farouk Adams. He was arrested and subsequently placed in custody.
“Farouk’s contract with Aduana has ended but out of loyalty, decided to stay back and help the team till the end of the first round of the league because the club was struggling defensively.
I’m reliably informed that, he has agreed a deal with a club in the United States, has already secured his visa and was preparing to travel.
“But by twist of fate, he will be arraigned before the Wamfie Magistrates Court at 9am tomorrow.
“Condolences to the family of the young officer.
