Berekum Arsenals owner and bankroller Alhaji Yakubu Moro has passed away in Accra, Footballghana.com understands
Alhaji Moro was pronounced dead on Thursday night following a short illness at the Ridge Regional Hospital.
The renowned and outspoken football administrator has not been well for some weeks now and was receiving treatment in Berekum.
Under his reign, Arsenals were able to qualify to the 2006 Caf Confederation Cup but were kicked out in the second round by Petro de Luanda of Angola 2-0 on aggregate.
Before his demise, Arsenals were playing in the Division One and had high hopes of securing a return to the top-flight ahead of the upcoming season.
Moro is likely to be buried on Friday morning as part of the ‘Adua’ before a mini funeral rite can be organised by the family at his former residence since he is a Muslim.
