'Kotoko crash saddening' - Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said he is “saddened” by news of the accident involving players and officials of Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

“Saddened by the news of the accident involving players & officials of Kotoko. My heart goes out to the team; speedy recovery to the injured,” Mr Akufo-Addo said in a tweet.

The assistant equipment officer of the club, Kofi Asare, has been confirmed dead.

The accident occurred around 9:45pm at Nkawkaw, when the bus ran into a stationary vehicle.

The team were returning to Kumasi on Wednesday, 12 July, 2017 after their 0-1 defeat to Inter Allies in a Premier League game.
