According to a Kumasi-based Referee Eric Owusu Mensah, FIFA's Disciplinary Committee decision to ban referee Joseph Odartei Lamptey for life can compelled him to cut his life short.
Owusu Mensah populary known as ''Kala'' gave good account of his colleague J.O Lamptey and labelled him as a sober person.
Kala who was always referring J.O Lamptey as 'Joe' claimed that lamptey was shortlisted by the world football's governing body, FIFA, as an official for the 2018 World cup which will be stage in Russia.
He further lamented that Lamptey is ready to evoke wrath of the gods on himself to testify his innocence.
''Ghanaians have lost something great especially we the referees. People are being unfair to him (J.O Lamptey)and that could lead to a psychological trauma of which he can kill himself because the insults and disgrace are too much for him to bear. Joe has told me he's ready to curse himself if indeed he manipulated the results'', Kala bemoaned on Kessben FM.
''Apparently the ball wasn't a penalty though but his assistants didn't helped him for taking that wrong decision.''
Video footage shows that referee Joseph Lamptey and his Assistants took that penalty decision through his communication gadget.
''FIFA should come out with the speculated betting company that influenced Joe''.
A renowned football administrator Takyi Arhin affectionately called 'Thunder' has hinted on Thursday that referee Joseph Lamptey was bribed by an Asian betting company to manipulate the World cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal which he officiated in November 2016.
Joseph Lamptey awarded a heartless penalty to South Africa for handball - but replays showed the ball clearly hit the Senegal defender Kalidou Koulibaly's knee.
The Senegal Football Federation made an official complaint to Fifa after the game ended 2-1 in favor of the Bafana Bafana.
Fifa Disciplinary Committee banned Lamptey for life in March 2017 for “unlawfully influencing match results”, a decision upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport this Wednesday.
The results has been nullified and the game will be replayed in November.
Senegal and South Africa are currently third and fourth in Group D with one and five points respectively. 
Burkina Faso and Cape Verde are on top of the group with six points each.
