Management of Asante Kotoko has condemned the unfortunate incident that happened at the Babayara Sports Stadium during their League match against Berekum Chelsea on Sunday.
The home fans who were livid with the output of centre referee Charles Bulu made things difficult for Police personnel on duty due to their disruptive behaviour.
Chaos erupted at the stadium which saw the shooting of a fan.
At the blast of the referee’s final whistle, the host supporters tried to find their way into the inner perimeter to attack referee Bulu, with that effort failing to materialize due to heavy security personnel, the fans retorted in throwing an object onto the field.
In an attempt to control the crowd, one Policeman mistakenly shot at a fan who was then rushed to the hospital.
The act has since raised fears among several football fans who are planning to watch Kotoko’s subsequent home matches.
Kotoko has therefore condemned acts which occurred at the Stadium and have called for calm.
Meanwhile, the fan who was shot is said to be responding to treatment.
Below is the Statement
