It was a black Friday for Ghanaians when the remains of Christian Atsu, who died during the devastating earthquake in southern Turkey last month, was laid to rest in Accra, the nation’s capital.
It would be recalled that Atsu was caught up in a 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked Turkey and Syria on February 6, killing more than 54,000 people in both countries.
He had gone missing following the collapse of an apartment building in Hatay.
There were earlier reports the player had been pulled alive a day after the quake, but these turned out to be false and his body was later found under the rubble and flown back to Ghana.
Hundreds of people attended the burial ceremony at Ghana’s presidential villa, including the country’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo, to pay their last respects.
Atsu spent four seasons at Chelsea before a permanent transfer to Newcastle in 2017.
