Twenty-One (21) old class III referee, Kyei Andoh, met his untimely death on Saturday following severe beatings he received from angry supporters, for awarding a last-minute penalty against their team.
Referee Kyei Andoh, a teacher in Boodea in the Western Region, was physically assaulted by the home fans [fans of Gold Stars] during and after the game played last Sunday.
He had officiated a Division Two League game between Najoe United and Gold Stars at Boodea on Friday, which ended 2-1 in favour of the away team, Gold Stars.
Retired referee T.K Aggrey confirmed the incident on Asempa Fm's 'Score Board' programme Sunday, hosted by Enoch Worlanyo also known as Professor Wallas.
"It was so, so sickening and sad. I went to commission a match elsewhere, got wind of the incident and passed by. It is so sad, the young referee is dead," Mr. T.K Aggrey grieved.
The 21-year-old did not seek medical care, according to reports – believed to have led to his untimely death a few days later.
“My brother had told us he was going to officiate a match and when he returned he told us of an incident that occurred in the match,” the deceased older brother Kweku Andoh Kyei narrated to Professor Wallas.
“That the home team assaulted him of the sort.
“He was even joking about the issue that one guy gave him a slap while others manhandled him.
“And then on Friday I was called and told that my brother was vomiting blood and had fainted.
“I was later called only to be told that he has passed away," Kweku said.
