Breaking News: Ghana defender Akaminko survives fatal accident

Ghana defender Jerry Akaminko

By Ameenu Shardow

Ghana defender Jerry Akaminko, who is part of the Black Stars squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, has survived a motor accident but could be prosecuted for reckless driving.

The 24-year-old, who will join Ghana’s team for their training camp in the UAE next week, crashed his brown Infiniti car into a taxi, an Urvan and then veered into the woods on the Koforidua road enroute to Kumasi.

The Eskishehirspor defender who sustained minor injuries narrowly escaped beating by the natives of the town where the accident occurred for causing the accident – presumably not knowing he is a Black Stars player.

The ex Heart of Lions player needed the timely intervention of another taxi driver to escape the beatings.

He was driven to the Koforidua Central Police Station for his statement – where it was reported that the defender was driving under the influence of alcohol.

Akaminko was also traveling with an overloaded vehicle with four girls and two men (him inclusive) instead of the certified load of five passengers.

The Ghana defender was desperate to keep the incident under wraps being a public figure and fearing the development could hamper his national team prospects as he is part of the provisional Ghana squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Unfortunately for him, he was unable to escape the efficient information and intelligence gathering capacity of GHANAsoccernet.com who blew his cover.

Akaminko then resorted to throwing money around in an attempt to get the matter quickly sorted at the Police Station.

He first offered the Urvan driver Ghc 400.00 to cater for the mild damage caused to the tro-tro bus.

He also agreed in principle to replace the badly damaged taxi he first run into before hitting the Urvan and subsequently veering off the road.

Akaminko was however denied his request made to the Police to have his damaged Infiniti ride immediately towed from the accident site back to Accra.

The Police according to information reaching GHANAsoccernet.com wanted to milk all the cash out of the defender upon getting hint of his high social status.

It is now unclear how they left the issue but the Ghana defender is in danger of legal prosecution for his role in the accident that held the potential of killing innocent people.

GHANAsoccernet.com will keep updating readers on any new development of the story.

    Somebody save this youngster! The country needs him

    • tzooh says:

      The country needs him? Well then he should obey the country’s traffic laws and not overload his five seater with 6 individuals plus himself making it a 7 passengers. He could have killed everybody in the car and other people around the town. Being a black star player does not mean you are above the law.

      • texas says:

        thank you tzooh! Akaminko supposed to be in jail for driving under the influence of alcohol. If that is true. When will simple laws like going to jail for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs work in Ghana…ooh! Akaminko should be asked if he can do that in Europe or US? if he wants to die so soon he should go alone! Enough of this bullshit from these 2 by 4 players.

  2. kwame pito says:

    because you get little turkish money and your first BS call-up you have already started fooling. Loading 4 succullent ladies in your ride and speeding to where? I am glad he is not dead but I hope the natives served him enough beatings. foolish boy.

  3. phillbanger says:

    These stupidity has to stop.how do u beat someone cos of an accident.stupid illiterates.the same thing happen to me.the only thing that saved me was my pistol i carry in my car.i hit someones car by accident by nima junction.this has to stop 4 real.

    • kwame pito says:

      I understand that a driver should not be given beatings for causing an accident. but its the frustration. You are in Ghana so u know how many people die from car accidents on our roads all the time . If things dont change people will start beating up “BANZA!” drivers for driving anyhow like they do to armrobbers caught in the act.

  4. J-Swift says:

    Hahaha dis guy is lucky he got some little beatings thahahaha next time make u no overload ur car with em bithes

  5. oxygen says:

    INTANT JUSTICE MUST BE DISCOURAGED,BUT MR WRITTER
    WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “beaten by the natives for causing the accident – presumably not knowing he is a Black Stars player”.MAY I KNOW WHETHER BEING A BS PLAYER ENTAILS CARELESS DRIVING.OR,IF ORDINAIRY GHANAIAN HE SHOULD BE BEATEN.

  6. J-Swift says:

    OXYGEN GUD QUESTION

  7. Davidson says:

    God save us oooo Let reason reign SUPREME in our thoughts, writings, talkings nd actions

  8. kobby says:

    The black Stars coach should sack this player immediately. A Black Stars player needs to be disciplined both on and off the field. How can he be careless and drive under the influence of alcohol. Discipline is the name of the game.

  9. Union Leader says:

    If these Reports are true,then I entreat the Coaches to Drop him from the Provisional Squad and invite Addy in his place.

  10. Darkuz says:

    When will all these sort of fake journalists be flashed out of the system ? Has there been an accident ? YES .Was he involved ? Yes ,he was.

    However,Akaminko was not driving under the influence of Alcohol.He is not a drunkard and he does not take in alcohol.If you people(so called journalists) are writing stories, do not twist and turn them just to please whoever you intend to. Remember to get your facts together before you ever publish any stories of this sort.All these half baked cum semi-literate people call themselves journalists.How is this Journalism?
    In any case,Akaminko’s Infinity FX 45 is silver in color not brown.I might not be privy to what transpired at the accident scene but I know what I have stated above are the real facts 1.Jerry Akaminko does not take ALCOHOL 2.His Infinity FX 45 is silver not brown.

    If the reporter/writer and editor of this website allowed this mischief to be effected, then questions must be asked about the details of events that transpired at the scene according to the reporter/writer and the credibility of the editor of the website to that extent.

  11. Kwame says:

    Hey guys you must know exactly what you write writer please report the truth also get your facts right the boy in question does not drink the car was not loaded with the so called ladies and also u can confidently tell you the people in the car were family member ok i was at the scene he was not drunk get in your head mr writer.

  12. Africanus says:

    The truth is that riches in Ghana and indiscipline are positively related. The more richer one becomes in Ghana the more he thinks he is above the law, particularly among younger adults. The fact that we have not had the opportunity to read about what other players are doing does not mean that they are all law abiding and disciplined. It is not too long ago that a group of black stars players went to a party in Accra just hours before a competitive match in Kumasi. Go figure.

  13. Kanda says:

    Your opponents are busy training for Afcon 2013, and you’re there drinking alcohol and partying!!

    And then when Ghana fails to win the Afcon, you complain. Wake up!!!!!!!!

  14. Cephas Kojo says:

    Ameenu Shardow, Being a journalist I think you should come up again with this story about Jerry load girls in his car at the time of the accident, I also think your report on the accident contain alot of LIES because Jerry was not drunk at the time the accident occur because i personally meet with him before he departed to Kumasi with his family.

    You should have find out who the occupant in the car were rather than putting into the media that he was drunk and also with girls.

    Your report wholes of defamatory and lies,You and Your editor need to do us good by checking report before posting on the web.

    You have come up so personal in your report because the facts on the ground does not catch up with your report…..

    Educate us than faking stories !

    This one of your lies to damage the image of the player, within his peers we know he does not DRINK alcohol, neither is he a womanizer.

    Give us a break !!!

  15. GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

    AH, THIS GUY PAA. TALENTED GUY LIKE U ACTING AND BEHAVING VERY STUPID. AAA SHOULD DROP HIM IMMEDIATELY. WAT A FOOL. U HAVE A GREAT OPPORTUINITY N U MESS IT UP BY DRIVING INTOXICATED? CANT U EVEN AFFORD A DRIVER WITH ALL THE MONEY U EARN. IDIOT! I DONT WANT SUCH A CHARACTER WEARING A GBSTAR JERSEY, IM SORRY. AA SHOULD DROP HOIM, AND CALL SOMEONE ELSE. FOOL!
    NEXTTIME, U WILL LEARN SENSE. WAT IF U HAVE DIED? 2 GUYS AND 4 GIRLS?….DROP THIS IDIOT. HE IS NOT SERIOUS!

  16. ezekiel says:
