There have been terrible incidents recorded in Nkoranza Children’s Park this evening when Nkoranza Warriors shared the spoils 0-0 with RTU in Zone One of Ghana Division One League, can report.

According to our sources, the assistant referee one of the game was allegedly hit with stones in the first half after the home supporters insisted he was aiding RTU with his decisions.

As a result, the centre referee had to halt the game close to fifteen minutes before it was restarted.

However, matters became worse after the final whistle, as the supporters allegedly charged on to the pitch and overpowered the security men present in their quest to show their ‘displeasure’ to the referees.

Our sources claim that the players and referees were held hostage and reinforcement had to arrive from Techiman to the venue to protect lives and properties. Some of the RTU players, however, sustained minor injuries before their bus was escorted from the park by the police.

RTU are topping the Zone 1 log as they hope to make a return back to Ghana Premier League next season.
