In recent months, Ghana Football has been marred by incidents of violence from fans in the Divison one league, especially attacks on referees.

General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association, Prosper Harrison Addo, has called for patience as the police conduct their investigations.

“We are working with the Ghana Police Service and recently, we given them some of the videos regarding the incidents.” He said in an Interview with Citi Sports.

“The Criminal Justice system is not a day’s job and so it will take a bit of time.

“Let it not surprise anybody if someone is arrested.

“What people must appreciate is that, when you commit a crime, there is not limitation, so you can commit the crime today and be arrested 2 years later.

“So the police are conducting their investigations, when they are ready, they will make the arrests.”
