GUNSHOTS: Ashanti Gold attacked by armed robbers after defeat to Hearts of Oak


The Miners had another setback following the narrow defeat to Hearts of Oak as they trekked back to Obuasi

Ghana Premier League side Ashanti Gold were attacked by armed robbers on their way back from Accra to Obuasi after they lost 2-1 to Hearts of Oak on Sunday.

A brace by Daniel Afriyie Barnieh cancelled Aminu Adams’ goal and won the day for Hearts despite the resilient defence of Ashanti Gold who were hoping to at least pick a point from the capital city.

“We got attacked by armed robbers on our way back from Accra at Assin Endwa,” a club statement read on Monday.

“The robbers shot three bullets at the front bulletproof glass as the team driver meandered his way through a terrible scene of gunshots.

“Thankfully, no individual sustained any injuries. The entire team is currently safe in Obuasi,” the statement added.
