NSA calls for Police Investigations over the alledged gun shooting incident in Kotoko vs Berekum Chelsea match

The Ashanti Regional Sports Authority have officially written to the Regional Police Commander to probe over the shooting of Asante Kotoko supporter during their 1-0 defeat to Berekum Chelsea in the Ghana Premier League match at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi last Sunday.

A letter signed by the Regional Sports Director, Mr Edmond Appiah, and delivery to the Regional Police Commander, DCOP Kwesi Mensah Duku, on Monday morning requesting for investigation following the gun shooting incident which "marred" the Premier League game.
 
"Please is formally to request your outfit for a full scale investigation into the disruptive incident that marred the above-mentioned football match on Sunday, 12th January 2020, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium leading eventually to the shooting of one of the supporters (fans) of Asante Kotoko FC," the letter read.
 
"Sir, for deeper information and to help ascertain the basis of such occurrence, we respectfully request that action will be expedited on this investigation in order to calm the nerves of all stakeholders and to bring possible culprits to book in real time," the letter said.
 
Fans of the Porcupine Warriors were disgruntled over a decision by the match referee after their defender Empem Dacosta was sent off.
 
They felt that the card was given to the player because of an incident that ensued between one of their players, Kwame Adom and an opposing player.
 
One fan was hit by a stray bullet when the police fired their guns to disperse the furious supporters who tried to throw missiles at the match officials.
