Story: Samuel Duodu, Sunyani
The Chief Executive Officer of former premiership side, Bofoakwa Tano F/C, Mr Apreku Tuffour, has filed a writ at a Sunyani Circuit Court against Kumasi Asante Kotoko for failing to pay a difference of ¢85 million in respect of players Bofoakwa transferred to Kotoko during the off-season.
Also added in the suit is the CEO of Kotoko, Mr Sylvester Asare Owusu.
The suit claimed that Bofoakwa, based on an agreement with Kotoko, transferred some players to Kotoko in the off-season.
Kotoko made part payment in respect of transfer of the two players — David Sarkodie and Owusu Poku — leaving a difference of ¢60 million to be paid by the end of October, 2007.
In the other transfer involving a player called Kwesi Owusu, Kotoko again made a part payment, leaving a difference of ¢25 million which Kotoko had failed to pay despite repeated demands.
In all, Kotoko is indebted to Bofoakwa to the tune of ¢85 million.
