He further said a report was made to the Police Station in the area by his family but no action or arrest has been made.

“We were watching soccer at Kasoa Fiifi Pratt Park and there was a fight that ensued between the teams playing the match.

“So a supporter of one of the teams playing the match called his brother who is a military man that they were being beaten. So his brother came with his colleagues.

“They were four military men and one Immigration Officer and they arrived in a Tundra and immediately they got to the park, they didn’t even ask who and who were involved and they started beating. One of the soldiers headed me and I fell down and went unconscious. I was beaten mercilessly.

“Right now, I am unable to walk and I have been diagnosed with kidney and liver problems and also have blood in my skull.”

A relative of his who is currently taking care of his medical bills pleaded for support and the arrest of the perpetrators of the act.

“The issue is quite disturbing. We have tried so hard to mobilise funds from friends and family and honestly lot of friends are showing support but it’s not enough. We are trying our best. Myself and a few friends from university and SHS are trying to create a GoFundMe account to help him.

“As we speak, we don’t have the capacity because the mother is currently home and does not have a job. He was the one taking care of the home and this happened. So it’s quite painful. Currently, we are struggling with the hospital bills. We have had friends donating and family people help but it’s not been easy,” he said.
