Ashanti Gold to Honour Late Board Member John Owusu


AshantiGold will wear black armbands during Sunday’s Super Cup against Medeama at the Accra Sports Stadium following the death of board member John Owusu.

Owusu, who was the Communications Director of AngloGold Ashanti (AGA) mining firm, died on Saturday morning in Obuasi.

According to a Daily Graphic report, he was ran over by a company vehicle during a swoop on galamsey operators in a concession.

Owusu was rushed to the AGA hospital, but was pronounced dead moments later.

He was among a team of officials from AGA which had carried out the swoop on the galamsey operators who had invaded a concession of the company in Obuasi.

The AGA officials were being pursued by the galamsey operators and in an attempt to escape, the driver reversed without knowing Owusu was behind the vehicle and ran over him.
