Management of Asante Kotoko has scheduled a screening exercise for every member of the team on board the bus that got involved in an accident on Wednesday.

The exercise to be led by the club’s medical team will be conducted on Saturday.

A statement issued by the Head of Asante Kotoko’s Medical Team, Dr Michael Leat, on Thursday said all treated and discharged victims of Wednesday night’s accident in Nkawkaw will undergo another screening.
