Augustine Oppong, who lost his right eye after a Police officer shot at him at the Baba Yara Stadium in January 2020, has had his eye replaced this morning.
An artificial eye has been fixed on the ardent fan after a successful surgery at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi a short while ago.
This marks the beginning of the former commercial driver’s full recovery from the incident that left four pellets of rubber bullets in his face.
Oppong was shot at close range by a Police officer during supporters agitation following our Premier League home defeat to Berekum Chelsea.
The Christopher Demanya-led National Circles Council (NCC) took care of his medical bills has since been responsible for his upkeep.
