The Police have said they would wait for the result of the autopsy to be released on Friday before allowing the family to perform the necessary rites for the deceased.
Kyei Andoh died last week after he was assaulted by fans in a Division Two match between Naajoe United and Gold Stars in the Western region but the family’s wish to bury him due to the shock and trauma being experienced by the late referee’s mother will not be realised.
“The family wanted to hold the funeral on Saturday, but the Police did not allow it and they took this decision at about midday on Wednesday.
According to the Police, they would rather choose to wait for the autopsy to enable them conduct their investigations into Andoh’s death before any other thing on the family’s side can be done”, said Oti Asrifie Mensah, a reporter with Spice FM in the Western Region in an interview with Citi Sports on Wednesday.
According to Mensah, the family has agreed to the directive from the Police in Prestea.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association and the Western Regional Football Association have decided to bear the cost of the autopsy of the late Andoh and the casket to be used for his burial.
