Several Ghana Premier League clubs have sent goodwill wishes to Kumasi Asante Kotoko after their team bus was involved in a fatal car crash on Wednesday night.
The team was returning to Kumasi after their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Inter Allies at the El-Wak stadium, when the bus they were travelling in ran into a truck which was parked in the middle of the road.
One person has already been reported dead, with several injured as a result. Kotoko’s biggest rivals, Accra Hearts of Oak were the first club to send their support to the club via social media and other clubs followed in the same vein.
The hashtag #PrayForKotoko is also the number one trend in Ghana.
Hearts of Oak
