Atsu left his apartment 20 mins before earthquake – Reports


Executive Director of the Crime Check Foundation, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng says he has been informed that former Black Stars winger Christian Atsu left his apartment before the devastating earthquake.

Christian Atsu is still missing after an earthquake hit Turkey 11 days ago. It was reported that the player was trapped under the rubble.

On February 7th, 2023, word came out of Turkey that the Ghanaian had been found alive under the earthquake rubble after only 26 hours and had been taken to the hospital for treatment.



A few hours later, Atsu’s club doctor disclosed that the footballer’s whereabouts are still unknown.

Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng who has been working with Christian Atsu over the years has stated that he has been told the player left the apartment minutes before the earthquake hit his building.

“I have been briefed by the club that he was not in the building. He run to the parking garage to get his car out and it was during that period that the Renaissance building totally collapsed and that happened 20 minutes after he left the apartment.”

“Our brother was not in the building, he went out before the building collapsed. But I can’t confirm whether he will able to leave the parking garage with his car or not,” he added.
