Awal Sulemana entered the pitch on the 74th minute and outrun some security officials before he was apprehended.
Information gathered by Happy FM indicates that the pitch invader spent the night at the Cape Coast Stadium Police cells.
According to the stadium announcer for the match, the pitch invader is a nurse who is awaiting postings and a resident of Kotokoraba, a suburb of Cape Coast.
“I heard they (Black Stars) will be stopping at Mankessim, but I knew the only opportunity I had to take a picture with Thomas Partey was on the field, that is why I rushed there”, he said.
Sulemana has been charged with unlawful entry and offensive character after appearing in court today.
