A GFA delegation made up of Ashanti Region FA Chairman Osei Tutu Agyemang (Kotoro), Exco member Fred Acheampong, NJC member Aminu Abdullahi (Kamarat)and Samuel Otoo of the Ashanti RFA have visited victims of yesterday’s accident at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi on Sunday morning.
The juvenile team made up of young players and their handlers were headed to Afrancho having undergone their District Colts football registration exercise at Offinso on Saturday before the vehicle conveying them submerged.
Unfortunately, eight of the young footballers passed away while others sustained various degrees of injuries.
The GFA delegation earlier visited the St Paul’s hospital in Offinso where they met Dr Debrah who explained the extent of injuries the victims at the hospital sustained as a result of the accident.
The delegation also visited the bereaved families to commiserate with them before going to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to visit other victims who sustained serious injuries.
