An incident occurred during a football match in the Ashanti Region town of Kumasi, where a female referee, Ms. Faizatu Jakpa of the Referees Association of Ghana, was physically attacked by a player.
An article from ghpage says that during a league game between Fabulous Ladies and Kumasi Sports Academy, the referee was physically assaulted and beaten up by a player from Kumasi Sports Academy.
A confusion occurred between the said Fabulous Ladies’ female player and the referee Faizatu during the match. As for what the problem was, we can’t say, but before the referee could utter a single word, she got her beatings of a lifetime, resulting in a swollen lip.
