An allegation has been levelled against a policeman for shooting two club officials in a division one league game between Tamale Utrecht and Berlin FC
The report says Osman Alhassan, coach of Tamale Utrecht was shot in the leg, while another team official whose name is yet to be disclosed was shot in the head from a rubber bullet fired by an unnamed policeman believed to have drunk at a time some fans expressed their displeasure concerning the results of the league game between Tamale Utrecht and Berlin FC.
“I understand that after matches when a referee’s performance is not the best, fans will surely show their dissatisfaction. But we controlled them,” Osman Alhassan told Asempa FM.
“Shockingly, the policeman who was brought there to enforce peace fired the gun. The gun hit me in the leg and another person in the head. Thank God they were rubber bullets.
“When we were being treated, I realized the policeman was fully drunk,”
Crowd violence has been on the ascendancy in recent times at league centres in all areas of Ghana Football, influencing the Ghana Football Association to come up with stringent measures to curb the situation. For instance, Hearts of Oak were handed an empty stadium sanction over crowd violence in their league game against Wa All Stars in the topflight division.
