The president of the Republic of Ghana – HE Nana Akufo-Addo has sent his sympathy message to Kumasi Asante Kotoko Sporting Club via his official verified Twitter account on Thursday morning.
The Kotoko team bus was involved in a fatal automobile accident at Nkawkaw on Wednesday night as the team was on the way back to Kumasi following a Week 22 premier league game against Inter Allies in Accra where the football powerhouse lost by 1-0.
Equipment Officer of the team Mr.Thomas Obeng Asare, unfortunately, did not make it as several other players and technical team members suffered various degrees of injuries and had since been transported to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi to receive better treatment after the preliminary medical aid the victims received at the Nkawkaw Holy Family Hospital.
H.E Akufo-Addo tweeted:
“Saddened by the news of the accident involving players & officials of Kotoko. My heart goes out to the team; speedy recovery to the injured.”
