The Porcupine Warriors last Sunday defeated their bitterest rivals Hearts 2-0 (Aggregate 4-0) to lift the Super 2 Cup Clash trophy at Baba Yara stadium.

However, in the cause of the game, the fans were caught after breaking the seats at the scoreboard area when the referee ignored a penalty call which eventually resulted in the opener for Asante Kotoko.

Asante Kotoko went ahead to win the match 2-0 courtesy goals from Obed Owusu and Emmanuel Gyamfi.

In the wake of the game, seven supporters of Hearts of Oak were apprehended by the police.

In an interview with the media, Sargent Bright Acheampong revealed that the culprits have been charged on three counts and will appear at the Kumasi Circuit court 2.

“They are charged on three accounts; damages, conspiracy and assault,” he stated.

“For the other two their dockets have been handed over to the drug law enforcement unit waiting for the distribution to be signaled on the court they will be arraigned before.”

The number of seats destroyed by the fans has risen from 173 to 275 as earlier reported which has been confirmed by the National Sports Authority in Kumasi with each seat costing an amount of GHC 110.00.
