An official of the Ghanaian Embassy in Cairo Egypt says the Embassy has not received any reports of Ghanaians being attacked by Egyptian fans as being reported in the Ghanaian media.
Yesterday the Finder Newspaper reported that ï¿½some Ghanaians resident in Cairo who spoke to The Finder newspaper on condition of anonymity for fear of repraisal attacks say they have been attacked by Egyptian football fans without any provocation.
According to the paper, the Egyptian fans allegedly resorted to assaulting the Ghanaians because of their disappointment over their teamï¿½s 6-1 defeat to the Black Stars of Ghana in the on-going World Cup 2014 Qualifiers.
However, speaking via telephone from Cairo yesterday, an official of Ghanaï¿½s Embassy in Egypt told host of Radio Universï¿½ ï¿½Inside Afrikaï¿½ Yaw Acheampong that the embassy has not received any such reports.
Although she did not rule out the possibility of attacks on Ghanaians by Egyptian fans, the official at Ghanaï¿½s Diplomatic Mission in Egypt asserted that ï¿½no one has come here till now for this reasonï¿½ Perhaps after a while, I donï¿½t know.ï¿½
