Former administrative manager of Ghana League Club Association (GHALCA) and ace sports broadcaster Christopher Opoku has lost the long fought battle to cancer.
The news of passing was made known Wednesday May 10, 2017.
Christopher Opoku passed on in London after undergoing a surgery, a close family source confirmed to www.MediafillasGH.com.
Born in 1974, Christopher Nana Opoku hails from Asante Akim Domeabra just seven miles from Asante Akim Agogo. Columbus as he is affectionately called is an alumnus of the Kumasi High School and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Christopher Opoku had been battling with cancer for about 4 years until his passing.
The former Metro TV sports journalist who has been off air for some time battled an unknown ailment that caused his disturbing weight loss in 2016.
