The fan, whose identity has not been disclosed, is receiving treatment at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti Regional capital.

He was transported in a police ambulance after he was allegedly hit by a stray bullet said to have been fired by a police officer who was dispersing angry Kotoko supporters.

Eyewitnesses told JoyNews some of the officers aimed at the crowd leading to victim being shot.

The Ghana Premier League game week three match between Kotoko and Berekum Chelsea was chaotic after a defender of the home team was sent off.

This unruly behaviour made the referee stop the match for several minutes.

After the match, referee, Charles Bulu and his assistants had to be heavily guarded before they were able to leave the pitch.

The prolonged disturbance after the game caused the law enforcers to fire warning shots leading to the injury of the victim.
