Dear COP Isaac Yeboah,
There’s a very troubling video of Patrick Allotey, a professional boxer assaulting a football fan at the Accra Sports Stadium during the Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko match played on Sunday, 26th January, 2020.
I am exercising my right as a citizen of the country to report what I consider to be a criminal offence.
I am also by the open letter officially drawing the attention of the Ghana Boxing Association to apply the needed sanctions.
As a sport loving person, I am traumatized by the video since I believe every Ghanaian should feel safe in any sports facility. I am also by this message drawing the attention of the National Sports Authority to put in place measures that ensures the safety and security of all sports loving persons at all sporting events.
