Video: Asante Kotoko supporter shot and badly injured after defeat to Berekum Chelsea


The supporter was hit with a bullet from the gun of a security officer on duty after his side lost at home on Sunday

A supporter believed to be Asante Kotoko fan was shot and badly wounded at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium following the Porcupine Warriors 1-0 home defeat to Berekum Chelsea in matchday three of Ghana Premier League on Sunday.

Kofi Owusu’s goal was enough to silence the home supporters who were looking for their third win in a row but that wasn’t even the blow that sent Kotoko supporters into protest.

Referee Charles Bulu mistakenly sent off Empem Dacosta after another Kotoko player had commit a foul and that led to a protest by the supporters.

Items including bottles and sachet water were thrown on to the pitch which brought the game to halt for almost ten minutes.

After final whistle, the supporters continued their protest and the security on ground started firing warning shots to disperse the irate supporters.

Unfortunately, one person was hit and left in to bleed since everyone was afraid of approaching where he was lying until few people gathered courage to pick and rush him to the hospital for treatment.

It is unclear what has happened to him upon arrival but is still following the development and will keep you updated.
