Rashid Sumaila being treated inside Kotoko?s team bus.

The centre-back received first aid treatment from the medical team and his situation is being closely monitored

Also midfielder Michael Akuffu also had bruises on both hands but was his case is not serious.

Referee Sucker?s final whistle marked the beginning of violence by the home supporters.

First they rushed on the referees and when they realized that the police and military men would not tolerate such acts, they turned their attention on members of Team Kotoko some of whom were still on the pitch chatting with friends.

They quickly run for shelter in the team bus and as the bus tried making its way out of the stadium, stones started flying in from all angles.

The police had to fire warning shots to disperse the crowd to enable the bus move out.

Team driver, Nana Berchie did a yeoman?s job by driving as fast as he could to get to the police station but this was not enough to save four window glasses (two on each side) from being smashed.
