Fallout from Kotoko’s loss to Chelsea in Kumasi – fan shot and unhappy supporters warn GFA President over favouritism
- January 13, 2020
Nasty scenes were recorded after Asante Kotoko’s home loss against Berekum Chelsea in the Ghana Premier League on Sunday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
A fan, whose identity has been given in the media as Justice Isaac Bediako, was shot by police during a post-scuffle.
The home fans have also been expressing their feelings towards Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku and some told Kumasi-based Angel FM in a post-match interview that they believe the FA capo is in power to play favouritism against them with his support for their rivals Hearts of Oak.
“If Kurt Okraku – the GFA President, is here because he wants Hearts of Oak to succeed then he should get ready for us. We will match him boot for boot,” one of the angry supporters said in a post-match interview on Angel FM.
The fan who was shot is critically injured according to reports but is currently receiving treatment at the KATH in Kumasi where he was rushed to by emergency service men.

Kotoko fans and some alleged officials staged their displeasure against center referee Charles Buulu over his performance in the game which saw Kotoko slammed to a painful 1-0 home loss before vociferous fans.
Returnee striker Kofi Owusu scored the game’s only goal early minutes in the first-half and Kotoko were unable to pull parity.
The results means Kotoko’s unbeaten run in the 3-week old Ghana Premier League has ended while Chelsea have now completed a double over two of Ghana’s leading clubs at their home turf this season.
