Amo Sarpong, Kotoko Policy Analyst sustained severe wounds after being attacked

The
Ghana Football Association (GFA) Normalisation Committee (NC) has strongly
condemned the shocking acts of violence witnessed at the Berekum Golden City
Park on Sunday 28th April during the NC Special Competition clash between
Berekum Chelsea and Asante Kotoko.

According
to the NC, they have learnt with horror that following a confrontation between
opposing supporters and officials, gunshots were fired as well as brutal acts of
violence and hooliganism.

“While
expressing our commiserations to the injured officials and supporters, the NC
would like to state in no uncertain terms that it is totally against the
carrying, wielding or use of weapons at any venue before, during or after
football matches.

“Again,
the NC emphatically condemns any provocation, abuse, threats or intimidation;
be it verbal or physical towards players, team/ match officials and media and
takes such attacks very seriously,” it wrote.

The
NC has, therefore, assured the general public that it will liaise with the
police to reach conclusive findings and ensure appropriate sanctions are meted
out to the perpetrator(s).

Additionally,
in accordance with GFA statutes, the NC will refer the matter to the
Disciplinary Committee of the GFA.

According
to reports, Kotoko Policy Analyst Amo Sarpong fired at least five warning shots
at the stadium and was beaten to pulp by the angry fans.
