LEAGUE leaders, Kessben FC have called for tight security in their Glo premier league match against New Edubiase United at the Obuasi Len Clay Stadium tomorrow.
This followed alleged threats by supporters of Obuasi Ashanti Gold FC to attack officials and players of Kessben when they travel to Obuasi tomorrow.
In a statement to the Premier League Board (PLB) dated November 19, 2009, Kessben said, “We wish to lodge a formal complaint about threats being issued by some supporters of Ashgold Football Club via radio stations to attack officials and the team of Kessben FC tomorrow when we visit the Len Clay Stadium for our seventh Week Premier League encounter with New Edubiase.
“The threats follow Ashgold’s away 2-1 defeat last Wednesday, November, 18, 2009 in the sixth week league match with Kessben FC at Abrankese where some supporters who were not in favour of the score line resorted to using abusive language and vandalised property amid throwing of stones at PLB officials present and Management / team of Kessben FC”.
The statement said in view of the threats being openly made on the airwaves, “we would like to draw the attention of all stakeholders, especially the security services to be on the alert for unruly behaviour from anybody or group of persons seeking to disrupt the match”.
Kessben FC expressed the hope that the matter would be taken seriously to protect life and property.
