Asante Kotoko have been accused of paying referees during their Special Competition match against AshantiGold at the weekend to scheme the results of the regional derby in their favour.

Retired referee Robert Tawiah Mensah is alleging one Kofi Oduro, who claims to have close ties with Kotoko chairman Dr Kwame Kyei is demanding a refund of a supposed GH 8,000 he paid to the match officials.

According to reports available to silveronline24, the CEO is alleged to have provided an amount of GH¢ 17000 to be given to a Tamale-based referee, Ali Alhassan who was to officiate Kotoko’s crucial away game against AshantiGold in Obuasi last Sunday in week eleven of the Normalization Committee Special Competition, but an amount of GHC 8000 was given out to the match officials.

The referee claims one Kofi Oduro nicknamed “Shishilla” has been hounding him with calls to get a refund of the cash after the Porcupine Warriors lost 1-0 in Obuasi.

The bribery allegation has ruffled feathers in Kumasi as it put the credibility of the Ghanaian powerhouse on the line.

The Kumasi-based club has released a statement denying ever giving any bribe to match officials to alter the results of the game.
