The Porcupine Warriors arrived in Kenya last week Thursday to face Kariobangi Sharks in their CAF Confederation Cup first leg.

Kotoko after securing a goalless draw against the Kenyans have been accused of stealing some towels which are missing at the City Lodge Hotel, they lodged in.

Augustine Sefah has however, denied such claims.

“What we took were face towels but we didn’t bring them to Ghana. What happened was that some of the players took them (face towels) to the dressing room at the stadium where the match was played so that they use it after showering following the end of the game. Some of the players even left the towels in the dressing room. Some too left them in the bus that transported us to the stadium” Sefah explained on Alpha Radio.


“I myself saw the face towel that Frederick Boateng left in the dressing room after using it. If there is anything we wanted to take to Ghana it would have been the big bath towels. They are very white and large. That is what we would have taken to Ghana if we wanted but we did not.” the full-back added.

“Felix (Annan) also took one of the bath towels to the stadium and that was what he used during the game against the Kenyans but we went back to the hotel with it.” Sefah revealed.

Meanwhile, assistant manager of the City Lodge hotel in Nairobi Allan Kimani spoke to Vision 1 FM to offer clarity on the matter.

“It is true that certain items are missing from the hotel rooms but we cannot attribute that to Asante Kotoko as we have had many visitors within the same week. We cannot say that.

Asante Kotoko will take on Kariobangi Sharks in the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup this weekend at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi.
