Ashanti Gold SC suffered a 2-1 loss to Accra Hearts of Oak yesterday at the Accra Sports Stadium in match day 21. The defeat meant that Ashgold are now four points above the relegation zone.

To further compound their woes, Ashgold were attacked by armed robbers at Assin Endwa en route to Obuasi (their home city). “The robbers shot three bullets at the front bulletproof glass as the team driver meandered his way through a terrible scene of gunshots” the club tweeted.

Despite the attack, the club stated that no one aboard the bus sustained any injuries. The team is currently in Obuasi safe and sound.

The incident has left many worried about the security of players. Some have suggested that each team should have a police escort or even spend the night after evening games before setting off the next day.
