Unknown assailants are said to have battered to death a prominent sports commentator in Bibiani, in the Bibiani Anhwiaso Bekwai Municipality of the Western North Region.
Issac Asare, also known as Maazoa Newman, was a freelance sports commentator for a number of regional and international media outlets.
Maazoa was reportedly attacked at 11:00 p.m. on February 14, 2022.
He was brought to the Bibiani government hospital but was transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital on Thursday, where he died.
Maazoa was not only a sportscaster, but also the head of the Accra Hearts of Oak Universal Chapter Union’s local chapter. He was also a frequent caller for the National Democratic Congress, the opposing party.
The deceased’s body has been placed in the morgue for autopsy.
The event was verified by Superintendent Seth Sawurnu Bibiani, the district police crime officer, who also stated that no arrests have been made thus far.
