The said match saw Ashanti Gold thrashed Inter Allies involving two own goals, with viral post-match footage on social media showing what were described as “cheap and deliberate own goals”.

Later, Inter Allies defender Hashmin Musah, who came into the game as a second-half substitute and bagged two own goals, confessed to deliberately putting the ball behind his own goalkeeper with intentions of foiling what he suspected was a standing, fixed 5-0 scoreline.

Inter Allies suffered relegation last season after finishing 18th on the league with 26 points, while Ashanti Gold finished 9th on the standings.
