Daily Graphic journalist, Daniel Kenu has dropped assault charges against Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan’s brother, Baffour, citing health and family reasons.
Mr Kenu, who is based in Kumasi, told the Kumasi Circuit Court in its hearing on Friday he wants to discontinue the case.
Kenu initiated court action against the ex Ghana striker over an alleged physical assault a day before the Black Stars played against Uganda in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
Two counts of assault charges were also brought against Asamoah Gyan’s business manager Samuel Anim Addo who according to Kenu was an accomplice in the alleged assault.
The case was struck off after the journalist told the court he was no longer interested in prosecuting the case any further.
Baffour Gyan and Samuel Anim Addo were acquitted and discharged.
