According to excerpts of a yet to be premiered video by Saddick Adams of Atinka FM and sighted by this portal, the former national asset now begs on the streets of Tamale.
He reveals that even though he sacrificed everything for the country during his playing days life has become unbearable for him.
The hardship he says has forced him to resort to begging on the streets for survival.
The player joined Kumasi Asante Kotoko in 1964 and was part of Kotoko’s team that won the African Cup in 1971.
He was the team’s top goal scorer during that competition.
Abubakari Gariba during his prime also played for Ghana during the 1972 Munich Olympic games.
