Ex-Black Princesses defender, Bridget Adu has called for prayers for Ghanaians living in Turkey following the latest earthquake update.
More than 4,800 people were killed and 15,000 injured in Turkey and over the border in Syria when a 7.8 magnitude tremor struck at 04:17 (01:17 GMT) on Monday at a depth of 17.9km (11 miles) near the city of Gaziantep, according to the US Geological Survey.
However, according to a statement made by Afad and Foreign Countries Organization, it is seen that the fault lines are gradually spreading to Turkey and the point of the fault lines includes Malatya – Ankara, Eskisehir – Afyon, Izmir – Usak, Manisa – Çanakkale, Izmit – Istanbul.
Bridget Adu in a chat with Ghanasportspage.com on Tuesday morning said; “Things are getting worse. Ghanaians should help us in prayers. Some of our players are crying to move back to their countries but borders are even closed and we’re not safe,” she stressed.
Bridget Adu currently plays for Istanbul-based Ataşehir Belediyespor in the Turkish Women Super Lig.
Adu is a graduate of the Ghana women’s U-17 and the U-20 national.
The former Sea Lions defender has been amazing since joining the Turkish club in 2022 and has already become unmovable in the team’s set-up.
