A Cameroonian footballer passed away on Saturday night after being struck by a projectile while playing for his club, JS Kabilye. The Algerian side were taking on USM Algier in a league game when striker Albert Ebossé was struck by something which had been thrown from the stands.
Ebossé, who had scored from the penalty spot in a 2-1 defeat, was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead later that night. A statement on Kabilye’s website said that an investigation had been opened into the tragic event.
The Ministry of Interior and Local Government, speaking through minister Tayeb Belaiz, has given an instruction to open an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Albert Ebosse.
The JSK player succumbed to a head injury after being hit in the head at the end of the meeting with USM Alger.
The president of the Confederation of African Football, Issa Hayatour, called for the perpetrator to be severely dealt with.
African football cannot be the breeding ground for hooliganism whatsoever. We expect exemplary sanctions to be taken against this grave act of violence.
