In the morning of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked Syria and Turkey on Monday, February 6, 2023, Ghanaian and Hatayspor winger Christian Atsu is said to have evacuated his building before it fell.
On the Crime Check Foundation's official YouTube channel, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng claims to have gotten an official statement from Atsu's club Hatayspor, which was supported by CCTV footage taken before the earthquake.
Ibrahim read a statement that claimed Atsu left his building before it fell.
“Christian Atsu managed to get out of the first earthquake at 4:17 a.m. on February 6, 2023, because he had not slept at that time. He later ran to the parking garage to get his car out, and it was during that period (20 minutes later) that the Renaissance building totally collapsed, he read.
