Nine football fans arrested after Kotoko-RTU match


The Ashanti Regional Secretariat of the National Sports Council (NSC) in collaboration with the Ashanti Regional Police Command have arrested nine football fans who went on rampage soon after Kotoko had trounced Real Tamale United (RTU) 3-0 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Monday.

They were alleged to have, without any provocation ripped off and destroyed about three plastic chairs at the Amakom stand of the stadium.

Mr K. Cephas, Administrator at the stadium, who confirmed the incident to the GNA Sports in Kumasi on Tuesday, stated that police were still investigating the issue and will mete out appropriate sanctions to the culprits.

He could not give immediate cost of the damaged chairs but insisted that security was tight and that the suspects were arrested following a tip-off that they were destroying the chairs for no apparent reason soon after the match.

The GNA Sports gathered that the suspects were all residents of Yelwa, a suburb of Kumasi and included one Ceasar Abass, Iddrisu and Mohammed.
