King Solomon Football Club have urged the police to prosecute those responsible for the attack on referee Samson Azumah that left a cut on his head.
Shocking pictures of the attack on the referee emerged on Monday after the incident at Kwahu Praso following King Solomon’s league defeat at home to Great Olympics.
In a strong worded statement signed by club president King Solomon Amankwah, the club said it is prepared to corporate with the appropriate authorities in order to ensure that those responsible for what it called “barbaric, absurd and irrational” attack are dealt with by the appropriate authorities.
The club also apologised to referee Azumah and said it is committed to his wellbeing.
The statement said it was apologising “with shame and humiliation”.
“What has happened is barbaric, absurd and irrational because the precious life of a human being was at stake,” the statement noted.
“King Solomon FC accepts responsibility for the fans behaviour and would not shield anyone found to be part of this senseless act,” it added.
