Gunshots was fired at the Golden City Park in Berekum ahead of the NC Special Cup match between Berekum Chelsea and Kotoko.
According to Sunyani-based reporter Mohammed Ibrahim who is covering the Berekum Chelsea vs Asante Kotoko NC Special Competition match, Kotoko Policy Analyst Amo Sarpong has fired at least five warning shots at the stadium.
A few minutes to the kickoff, Amo Sarpong is reported to have been attacked by some rowdy fans in Berekum and hit his head with a stone.
Kotoko’s Operations Officer Perugia was also attacked in the process and when Amo Sarpong tried intervening, he was pelted again.
This time, the Kotoko officer rushed to his car and pulled a short gun before firing several warning shots.
He was subsequently arrested and sent away in a police van. Meanwhile, the angry fans later attacked the said car from which the gun was pulled and deflated its tyres.
Some persons were injured in the process.
