Kumasi Asante Kotoko have been banned temporarily by the Ghana FA Executive Council following the incidents that happened in match day 3 of the the Ghana Premier league at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
A group of irate Porcupine Warriors fans threw bottles of water at the referees during their game against Berekum Chelsea when he awarded a red card to Empem Dacosta for off the ball incident, which caused the game to be brought to a halt in the second half.
The events led to the shooting of a Kotoko supporter from a police officer on duty after the Porcupines lost 0-1 to the Bibires at their own backyard in Oseikrom.
