Ghana FA bans Kotoko's Sarpong for gunshots in Berekum

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) have punished Asante Kotoko Policy Analyst Dr. Amo Sarpong with a temporary ban from all football activities.

The Kotoko man Sarpong simply whipped out a firearm to shoot several gunshots during Sunday’s violent disorder at the Golden City Park Stadium in Berekum.

GFA have announced taking action on the Porcupine Warriors’ official, just a day after Berekum Chelsea announced their withdrawal from the tournament.

''This decision has become necessary due to his alleged involvement in an unfortunate gunshot incident that occurred during a Day Eight match between Berekum Chelsea FC and Asante Kotoko SC played on Sunday, 28th April, 2019 at the Berekum Golden City Park,” said the GFA on their website.

''This order is without prejudice to the determination of the case pending before the GFA Disciplinary Committee and the Berekum Police Command.

Additionally, the association have confirmed that they are still to take further action, most likely against the two clubs.

''Meanwhile, the GFA Disciplinary Committee has been charged to hear the case in accordance with the GFA Regulations,” concluded GFA.
