The owner and bankroller of former Ghana Premier League side Berekum Arsenals, Alhaji Yakubu Moro, has been confirmed dead in Accra.

The outspoken football administrator has been unwell for a couple of weeks now in Berekum. His condition however became severe on Thursday evening after he was admitted at the Ridge Hospital in Accra where the medical put in their best effort until he unfortunately passed on in the early hours of Friday.

Under his stewardship, Berekum Arsenals qualified to play in the 2006 Caf Confederation Cup but were kicked out in the second round by Petro de Luanda of Angola after a good run in the Ghana Premier League.

Berekum Arsenals have however been playing in the second-tier of Ghana league for sometime now after they were relegated from the premier league.

Alhaji Moro is likely to be buried on Friday in fulfillment of the Islamic Rights as part of the ‘Adua’ before a mini funeral will be organised by the family at his residence.
